Executive Summary: A diverse group of civil engineering and other leaders, including international guests, gathered in June 2006 to actively participate in the Summit on the Future of Civil Engineering. Their purpose: articulate an aspirational global vision for the future of civil engineering addressing all levels and facets of the civil engineering community.
Today’s status of civil engineering served as the Summit’s benchmark. Examples of current issues and trends noted at the Summit include the poor condition of the infrastructure in many nations, the occurrence of corruption in the global engineering and construction industry, the minimal involvement of civil engineers in the political process, the need to more fully embrace sustainability, the globalization of engineering practice, and the desire to attract the best and brightest to the profession. Summit participants see a very different world for civil engineers in 2025. An ever-increasing global population that continues to shift to urban areas will require widespread adoption of sustainability. Demands for energy, drinking water, clean air, safe waste disposal, and transportation will drive environmental protection and infrastructure development. Society will face increased threats from natural events, accidents, and perhaps other causes such as terrorism.
Dealing with the preceding problems and opportunities will require intra-disciplinary, cross-disciplinary, and multidisciplinary collaboration on projects and in research and development. More advances in areas such as information technology, intelligent infrastructure, and digital simulation will be needed.
Informed by this state of the civil engineering profession and the challenges and opportunities facing it, the aspirational global vision developed as a result of the Summit is:
Entrusted by society to create a sustainable world and enhance the global quality of life, civil engineers serve competently, collaboratively, and ethically as master:
• planners, designers, constructors, and operators of society’s economic and social engine—the built environment;
• stewards of the natural environment and its resources;
• innovators and integrators of ideas and technology across the public, private, and academic sectors;
• managers of risk and uncertainty caused by natural events, accidents, and other threats; and
• leaders in discussions and decisions shaping public environmental and infrastructure policy.
Summit organizers and participants want this vision to guide policies, plans, processes, and progress within the civil engineering community and beyond—and around the globe. The engineering community, especially the civil engineering community, is global and, as such, should share a common vision and work together to achieve it.
Now that the Summit is complete, the vision articulated, and the report completed, leaders of civil engineering organizations around the globe should move the civil engineering community toward the vision. Meeting this challenge will require active engagement on a variety of environmental and infrastructure fronts.
