A. M. Aramati Casper; Rebecca A. Atadero; A. Rahman Abdallah; Tom Siller – Journal of Civil Engineering Education, 2024
Civil engineering education must be updated to keep pace with the profession and move past a culture of disengagement where technical work is considered separate from societal impact. Civil engineering students need to engage with diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice (DEIJ) so they can understand the differential impacts of engineering on…

Tonmoy Sarker; Cristina Poleacovschi; Toby N. T. Nelson; Katy Swalwell; Joseph Svec; Mollie H. Appelgate; Christa Jackson; Kristen Cetin – Journal of Civil Engineering Education, 2024
Civil engineering students in the United States rarely receive instruction about how their work affects social inequities. Indeed, research reveals that most engineering students lack critical consciousness and fail to recognize and analyze real social inequity challenges as they arise in engineering contexts. As history demonstrates, this can…
