Many civil engineers, as they advance in their professional careers, become increasingly involved in technical and general management. The present trend towards quantitative management methods, which makes use of mathematical modeling and similar analytical techniques, is of particular interest to the management-oriented engineer. The paper reviews the educational preparation for management which is supplied through the typical CE undergraduate curriculum, and is made to the current ASCE policy, as evidenced by the ASCE Fellowships in Civil Engineering Management.
