Innovation in Civil Engineering Education for Future Ready CEs

State of the Industry / Profession

Building on an Action Plan based on the priorities and opportunities identified at the ASCE 2019 Civil Engineering Education Summit, ASCE has embarked on a bold effort to lead engineering education into the 21st century. Initiatives include establishment of a Civil Engineering Education Innovation Working Group under the auspices of the ASCE Committee on Education; partnering with Clemson University and the National Science Foundation’s Revolutionizing Engineering Departments (RED) Program to produce the 2023 Civil Engineering Education Summit; and convening education leaders from several professional societies to discuss a roadmap for the future of engineering education and how it can best serve the needs of society for the coming decades.

This session will explore how ASCE is working to attain the objectives put forward at the 2019 Civil Engineering Education Summit:
• Elevating professional skills to the same level as technical skills
• Reimagining the domain of civil engineering
• Attracting more diverse individuals to the profession through inclusive and equitable practices
• Fostering an ongoing dialog between academia and industry
