Abstract

Continued Assessment of Information Technology Software Integration in a Civil Engineering ProgramAptitude and skills in information technology remain critical in the Civil Engineering profession.Recognizing this, many universities include the development of information technologyknowledge in their vision and goals, as well as their ABET outcomes and objectives. The CivilEngineering program at XXXX is one such university. Since 2007, the program has includedindustry-leading software from AutoDesk and Bentley. The software has been introduced in asite design course, used in follow-on courses, and integrated into the program’s capstone course.Because of XXXX’s commitment to the development of cognitive, affective, and psychomotorskills with information technology, there has been a continuous study on the numerous andunique challenges associated with integrating such technologies into their courses and programs.An initial report provided a synopsis of efforts over the initial three semester’s time (2007-2008)and this paper will report on the follow-on study. Further assessment, new approaches, and acomparison of methods will be discussed all using the same framework of three studentdevelopment domains: cognitive, affective, and psychomotor. In so doing this new study willserve as a follow-up discussion on how the Civil Engineering Program at the XXXX continues tomeet these challenges and how the solutions can be applied in others programs.
