About the Coference

"The dwindling United States workforce for all engineering and scientific disciplines is a growing problem, and civil engineering is no exception. If the U.S. is to address the challenges it faces with an aging infrastructure, shrinking energy and water resources, and globalization, we must act now to attract, educate, and train talented new professionals to civil engineering to compete in a rapidly changing, technology-driven world. ASCE’s 138th Annual Civil Engineering Conference ENGINEERING: The Workforce of the Future, will describe the issues and offer solutions." -ASCE Website
