Abstract: The papers included in this publication present an overview of the current state of civil engineering education and resolutions for future development in the field. Six key areas are covered: (1) Human resources, including both faculty and students, with discussions on women and minorities in the field; (2) financial resources for program development as well as physical facilities; (3) program models for communications, professionalism, technical areas, and special developments; (4) quality control for student recruitment, teaching methods and curricula; (5) application of microcomputers and other high technology in civil engineering education; and (6) education/practice interchange. These topics are addressed in the form of case reports, theoretical discussions, and reviews and summaries of surveys.
