Rapid computerization in educational institutions, such as establishment of departmental computer facilities, requires realistic planning to implement and incorporate the new capabilities into civil engineering educational and research functions. Prior to any move towards computerization strategic planning is required. Budget constraints may require the use of alternate approaches to attain goals, such as the use of microcomputers with graphic emulation instead of full-fledged graphic workstations. After the installation of a system, a continuous internal audit, to monitor the commitments to the original goals, is recommended.
