The results of a pedagogical strategy implemented at the University of Sao Paulo at Sao Carlos are presented and discussed. The initiative was conducted in a transportation course offered to Civil Engineering students. The approach is a combination of problem-based learning and project-based learning (PBL) and blended-learning (B-learning). Starting in 2006, a different problem was introduced every year. From 2009 on, however, the problem-based learning concept was expanded to project-based learning. The performance of the students was analyzed using the following elements: (1) grades in course activities; (2) answers from a questionnaire designed for course evaluation; and (3) cognitive maps made to assess the effects of PBL through the comparison of the responses provided by the students involved and those not involved in the experiment. The results showed positive aspects of the method, such as a strong involvement of several students with the subject. A gradual increase in the average scores obtained by the students in the project activities (from 6.77 in 2006 to 8.24 in 2009) was concomitant with a better evaluation of these activities and of the course as a whole (90 and 97% of options "Good" or "Very good" in 2009, respectively). A growing interest in the field of transportation engineering as an alternative for further studies was also noticed. DOI: 10.1061/(ASCE)EI.1943-5541.0000115.

The Civil Engineering Course of the University of Minho in Portugal started with peer assessment in the first year of the academic year 2004/05. The implementation of peer assessment at this course was a consequence of the successful mplementation of peer and self assessment at other engineering courses of the University of Minho. This article will outline the motives for the implementation of peer assessment, the expected and obtained effects and will delineate the group work processes that are put into action at the first year of the Civil Engineering Course. During the semester, three assessment moments take place in two subjects, with a different assessment task at each moment. Students are supposed to assess the work of the peers, supported by well defined criteria that are partly the results of a negotiation process between students and teacher. They subsequently mark the work of their colleagues and provide a clear justification for each given mark. The aim of this method is to involve them in the subject, enhance their motivation and in that way deepen their learning. Advantages and disadvantages of peer assessment from both the teacher’s and the students´ perspective are discussed. The results that have been obtained so far...

The Portuguese FCT-“Excellence Stimulus” prize is attributed to Investigators and Professors that published at least 100 papers in the Web of Science-WoS with 500 citations or else 50 papers published in the WoS with 250 citations and the supervision of 10 PhD Thesis. So far almost 70% of these prizes have been awarded to investigators and Professors working in the field of Chemistry. The present paper shows that the fact that this prize has never been award to an Investigator or to a Professor working in the field of Civil Engineering does not mean that excellence is lacking in this particular field. The highest h-index for Associate and Full Professors of Civil Engineering Departments of the six most productive Portuguese Universities are presented in this paper. Comparisons with world top Professors and researchers in the field of Civil Engineering are made.

A new course designed to introduce freshmen to civil engineering and to give non-engineers a taste of engineering was developed and taught. The course is divided into four sections (demand, design, construction, and effects) that illustrate the life-cycle of an engineering project. It was taught using case studies, illustrated lectures, discussions, and hand-on-projects. Extensive surveying of students indicates that the course was effective in conveying the importance of economics and inter-personal communications in engineering, portraying the scope of civil engineering, and giving students an understanding of the design process. Both engineers and non-engineers found the course interesting, and the engineering students felt that it encouraged them to remain in engineering.

This paper presents the research and discusses the findings concerning the identification and definition of quality dimensions related to the monitoring data obtained in the safety control of major civil engineering works, namely dams and bridges. The analysis of the behavior and the safety evaluation of these works essentially depend on the quality of the data collected by the sensors, named the observation data, besides the quality of the models and, last but not least, the knowledge and experience of the experts involved. In addition, LNEC stores and preserves the observation data concerning major civil engineering works, which represents an important research source for LNEC and Universities and, thus, shapes itself as an e-Science scenario. Differently from other e-Science environment authors, we have not restricted our work to objective dimensions, whose measures can be calculated automatically. It appears, from the experts' opinions, that some subjective dimensions can largely enrich the quality information about archived data at the expense of some additional work in data curation. In the development of this research we used an online version of the Delphi method with the Q-Sort technique, complemented with upstream interviews and a downstream meeting with the experts. We found out...

One of the Civil criteria in ABET TC2K is that programs “apply current knowledge and adapt to emerging applications of technology,” such as, changes in the building codes. Structural design firms also have the expectation that Civil Engineering Technology (CET) graduates should be able to apply current codes to determine structural loads, required for the analysis and design of structures. While most CET programs expose their students to structural analysis and design using instructor or textbook-prescribed loads, few expose students to the detailed calculation of actual structural loads using current codes. Many jurisdictions in the United States, including New York State, have recently adopted the International Building Code (IBC), which contains the latest provisions on structural loads, including wind and seismic loads for buildings. Prior to 2002, in New York State, the building code only required buildings to be designed for wind loads using a very simple tabular method. Seismic loads were not considered. Under that dispensation, it was possible and feasible to integrate the topic of structural loads, dead, live, snow and wind load, into any one of the structural design courses, all-be-it at an elementary level. However...

Talent management, an integrated system of recruitment, development and retention of the required human capital at all organisational levels, is at the forefront of business agendas. Given the skills shortage in South Africa, talent management is expected to remain a business imperative especially in the science, engineering and technology arena. The importance of talent management stems from its role in achieving competitive advantage in order to realise the strategy of the organisation. In this paper the perceptions of people responsible for talent management in their respective organisations are presented to determine the status of talent management in the South African consulting civil engineering industry in 2008. The survey found that most respondents (94%) thought talent management was a priority but only 57% of them had some talent management initiative in place. The primary concern (55% of respondents) was to create a deep reservoir of successors at all hierarchical levels of the organisation. Inability to do so threatens not only the continuity of the organisation per se, but also the wealth-creating capacity of the country as a whole, since civil engineers play a primary role in creating and maintaining infrastructure.
