The new millennium was accompanied by a dramatic technological revolution and challenges in many realms including the energy crisis, environmental degradation, over-population, over-consumption, public health, and education.

Solutions to these challenges are increasingly interdisciplinary and international. It is imperative that global aspects of construction, including global literacy, ethical and cultural characteristics, are incorporated into the education and training process of construction engineers so that they are better prepared for their practice and are globally competent. This paper will discuss existing Current Global Construction Programs and courses and also will provide a hypothetical and specific framework for incorporating global course content in construction engineering education that
