Abstract: ASCE held an engineering education conference in April, 1985, entitled, Educators and Practitioners—Where Are We Going? Participants agreed that a greater interchange is beneficial between faculty and students at the university and practitioners in the business world. On other subjects the conference attendees were less than united. Among issues addressed were the role of computers in civil engineering education, a five-year engineering program, the need for better communications skills among engineering graduates, a divorce of civil engineering and the construction industry, a dearth of research funds, and the reputation of civil engineering as a low technology profession.
