    3. Opening Thought “Our greatest obligation to our [future civil engineering professionals] is to prepare them to understand and to deal effectively with the world in which they will live and not with the world we have known or the world we would prefer to have.” - Grayson Kirk (1903-1997) Educator

    4. Our Profession and Our Vision 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 the built environment • stewards of the natural environment • integrators of ideas and technology • managers of risk and uncertainty • leaders in shaping policy 4 4

    12. BOK Educational Fulfillment Committee (BOKEdFC) CHARGE • Create community of scholars interested in engineering educational reform. • Document curriculum changes from BOK1. • Identify possible curriculum changes consistent w/BOK2 – and document actual changes. • Pursue other activities in future related to BOK2. • Complete by 30 September 2009.

    22. Areas of Concern: BOK2 30

    23. Current Activities Task groups organized to focus on identified outcomes of concern Provide background and discussion Address why programs may currently have difficulty addressing the outcome and LOA Provide case studies current approaches and other possible approaches Make recommendations for future consideration Goal – comprehensive report next year (e.g., ASEE 2010)

    25. OVERVIEW:BOK Experiential Fulfillment Committee (BOKExFC) • CHALLENGE – ALIGN EXPERIENTIAL OUTCOMES WITH THE -- • PRACTICAL REALITIES OF AN ENGINEER INTERN’S PRE-LICENSURE EXPERIENCE. • LICENSING PROCESS. • FOCUS – ON 15 (of the 24) BOK2 OUTCOMES WTH EXPERIENTIAL EXPECTATIONS.

    26. BOKExFC “PROBLEM” TO OVERCOME • ACCUMULATION & VALIDATION OF ACCEPTABLE EXPERIENCE IS A REQUIREMENT FOR LICENSURE. • EXPERIENCE REQUIREMENTS ARE: • POORLY ARTICULATED. • NON-UNIFORM ACROSS JURISDICTIONS. • GENERALLY LACKING IN STRUCTURE.

    27. BOKExFC -- CHARGE CAP 3 recruited practitioners from a diverse cross-section of the profession — especially individuals involved with the development of engineer interns (EI). Develop a stand-alone set of experience guidelines for the civil engineer intern – to include provisions for reporting, mentorship, assessment, and validation of the experiential outcomes.

    34. The program must demonstrate that graduates can… Revised Basic-Level Criteria Fundamentals Math & Science • Apply knowledge of mathematics through differential equations, calculus-based physics, chemistry, and at least one additional area of science, consistent with the program educational objectives; • Apply knowledge of four technical areas appropriate to civil engineering; • Conduct civil engineering experiments and analyze and interpret the resulting data; • Design a system, component, or process in more than one civil engineering context; • Explain basic concepts in management, business, public policy,andleadership; • Explain the importance of professional licensure. TechnicalBreadth ProfessionalPracticeBreadth

    35. ABET-EAC Advanced/Masters-Level Criteria* • Fulfill basic/baccalaureate-level general criteria • Fulfill program criteria appropriate to the advanced level specialization area • One year of study beyond the basic level • Apply advanced level knowledge in a specialized area of engineering related to the program area

    36. ABET SELF-STUDY REQUIREMENTS • Describe the procedure used to ensure that all graduates satisfy both the baccalaureate level and masters level criteria. Use Table 5-1 to list the course requirements of the masters level curriculum. • Demonstrate that graduates have an ability to apply advanced level knowledge in a specialized area of engineering related to the program area. Identify the specialized areas of engineering and the associated advanced level knowledge.
