AECEF members can make suggestions to complement the items on the proposed agenda through the AECEF Secretary Office by July 15, 1994.

1995 ASCE Educational Confierence

The Educational Conference of the American Society of Civil Engineers will take ptace in Denver, Colorado, USA from July 8 - 11 , 1995.

The aims of the 1995 conference are to

  1. define current and future needs for civil engineering education and training,
  2. develop an array of ASCE educational objectives, perspectives and strategies for possible implementation,
  3. strengthen global interaction among educators, students, and practitioners.

By improving civil engineering education, which forms the foundation of professional practice, the position of the civil engineering profession will be enhanced.

Any member and/or friend of the ASCE, who has strong feelings about an issue related to civil engineering education is encouraged to submit a short position paper to Mr. Charles Day, ASCE, 345 East 47th Street, New York, NY 10017-2398, USA by the end of 1994.

The ASCE would welcome the active participation of the AECEF and its members in this Conference.

The 1st AECEF Symposium (Prague, September 1995) will continue the work begun at this conference and will enable its participants to exchange ideas on problems concerning the education of civil engineers.
