Climate change. Alternative energy. High-tech construction. Autonomous vehicles. Smart cities. Changes to funding.
Any of these issues on their own might have significant effects on the practice of civil engineering as they evolve over the course of the next 10, 25, or even 50 years. But taken together, their interactions with one another and their impacts on design and construction could be profound—potentially revolutionary.
So ASCE is encouraging engineers to begin now to examine those trends that have the greatest potential for impact on the built environment and how those trends might intersect, interact, and influence one another,
