Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to provide the engineering education community with its first formal update from ASCE's new Body of Knowledge (BOK) Educational Fulfillment Committee. Specific emphasis is given to survey data illustrating how well programs, in their current design, achieve the educational outcomes of both the first and second editions of the civil engineering BOK. The results of a curricular review by ten representative civil engineering programs are presented. Explanations are also presented as to why current curricula may fulfill or fall short of fulfilling specific B0K1 and B0K2 outcomes.
