“Students need to learn systems thinking so that they are prepared for current and future societal challenges.”
*ASCE Releases Roadmap for the Future of Civil Engineering Education*
The 2019 ASCE Education Summit, held in Dallas last May, included a mission statement of sorts as its subtitle: “Mapping the Future of Civil Engineering Education.”
The full report of summit findings is available as a free download on the ASCE website.
Included in the report are four key recommendations that provide a structure of aspirations for civil engineering education:
• Elevate professional skills to an equal footing with technical skills.
• Develop a diverse, inclusive, equitable and engaging culture within the civil engineering profession.
• Reexamine and potentially redefine the domain of civil engineering.
• Foster an ongoing commitment to transformative education.
