Abstract

The context and existing change agents mandate that significant improvements in civil engineering education be initiated. The society is being shaped by elements that are very different from those that existed when the Grinter report prescribed the approach that civil engineering education has been pursuing for almost a half century. Information technology is now ubiquitous and an entire field of cognitive science has begun to define how people learn. The profession of civil engineering and civil engineering education should conduct a self-examination, recommend actions and implement a plan, along with a methodology for assessing distributing the outcomes.
