The vision for civil engineering in 2025



Civil engineers are rightfully proud of their legacy. During the past century, clean water supplies have extended general life expectancies. Transportation systems serve as an economic and social engine. New bridges, blending strength and beauty, speed
transport and bring communities closer together. Public and private construction, for which engineers provide the essential underpinnings of design and project oversight, produces hundreds of thousands of jobs and drives community development. From
the functional and beautiful Golden Gate Bridge in the United States, Petronas Towers in Malaysia, and Pont du Gard in France to the largely hidden water supply and sanitary sewer systems, civil engineers have made their mark in many aspects of the dailylife of essentially everyone around the globe.

Civil engineers know they cannot rest on their laurels. Current trends pose questions about the future of the profession. These questions address the role that civil engineers play—and could play—in society, in the ultimate integrity of the world’s infrastructure , and in the health of the natural environment.

For many years, civil engineering leaders sounded the alarm about the lack of investment in maintaining and improving the infrastructure. Some of those short comings were tragically illustrated by the death and destruction caused by failures in which engineering designs, government funding, and the community oversight systems were all called into question. Civil engineers are painfully aware of the consequences for public health, safety, and welfare when the infrastructure does not get the attention it requires.
