In October, 2016, the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) launched the Civil Engineering Body of Knowledge 3 Task Committee (CEBOK3TC), with the charge to critically review published literature regarding the future of engineering, other disciplines, and civil engineering practice; evaluate the second edition of the civil engineering body of knowledge (CEBOK2); proactively solicit constituent input; determine if a third edition of the Civil Engineering Body of Knowledge (CEBOK3) report was warranted; and, if warranted, develop the CEBOK3 report. The CEBOK3TC completed its charge, including determining that the CEBOK3 was warranted, in the fall of 2018. The CEBOK3 report was prepared by the CEBOK3TC and will be published by ASCE in the spring of 2019. This paper will provide an overview of the CEBOK3, focusing on the “Who, What, When, Where, and Why” of the CEBOK3: 1. Who was involved in developing in the CEBOK3, and who should be interested in it? 2. What was done to develop the CEBOK3, and what should be done with it? 3. When was the civil engineering community informed about the CEBOK3, and when will it be implemented? 4. Where can additional information be found regarding the CEBOK3, and where can a copy of the report be obtained? 5. Why did the CEBOK3 get developed, and why should someone care about it?
The paper is a follow-up to updates on the CEBOK3 at the 2017 and 2018 ASEE Annual Conventions and will present thorough answers to these questions, providing a comprehensive overview of the CEBOK3TC’s effort and the process it followed to complete its charge. The primary purpose of this paper, similar to the two previous papers, is to once again update the civil engineering community on the progress of the CEBOK3TC and, with its charge completed, to present an overview of the new CEBOK3.
