Abstract

ABSTRACT Globalization has captivated and heightened our awareness of the importance of ecological integrity and diversity. Earth-friendly, sustainable building design and construction practices are no longer a mere fad, but have become an urgent necessity. Modern construction engineers should be educated on sustainability and equipped with critical reasoning so that they can avoid the same mistakes as their less-than-green predecessors. This paper addresses the need for curricular changes to foster sustainable thinking. Also, the implementation of a course in the Texas Tech University Construction Engineering Technology program is discussed. Keywords: Sustainable Education, Engineering Curricular Changes
