A careful and inclusive process was used to determine the skills, knowledge, and attitudes that future civil engineers should possess, as articulated in an updated edition of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Civil Engineering Body of Knowledge (CEBOK3). A key component was obtaining input from various constituents at multiple points in the process. This paper focuses on three structured surveys that were developed and deployed in winter 2017, fall 2017, and spring 2018. The first survey focused primarily on the importance of the 24 outcomes in the CEBOK2 and additional potential outcomes. The second survey was a pre-draft of CEBOK3 rubrics for the cognitive domain of 21 outcomes and affective domain for 7 outcomes; respondents rated the minimum level of achievement appropriate for all civil engineers as they enter into the practice of civil engineering at the professional level. The final survey on the draft CEBOK3 allowed individuals to provide feedback on those among the 21 outcomes that held the most personal interest. The paper describes the survey development, distribution, and responses for each of the three surveys. Discussion will focus on how the survey helped inform the process of preparing a BOK that was inclusive of the ASCE membership and other stakeholders.
