dc.description.abstractWorld economy is changing rapidly. On the one hand, issues like health and safety, quality, resilience, sustainability, social justice and environment are increasing their weight for decision makers compared with traditional pecuniary considerations. On the other hand, the advent of cheap powerful computers, smart phones and robots is changing society drastically and also the economic interactions. The general agreed on professional requirements for future generations are the ability to interact with computers and robots, and the ability to do what these are not able to do (the so called soft skills as ethics or creativity). Civil Engineer practice is also impacted by this change. In the frame of Bologna Treaty, most universities are striving to adapt their educational contents as well as their training methods. Is Civil Engineering Education able to keep pace? In this book, this question is answered addressing the following topics: 1. New contents and capabilities: Resilience, sustainability, BIM (Building Information Modelling), soft skills, automation, artificial intelligence, smart cities, UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles). 2. Methodology: Student centered teaching methods, online learning, flip learning, active learning, PBL (Project Based Learning) 3. The impact of educational policies: quality management, quality control and accreditation agencies, links between teaching, research and practice
