KINYUA PROFMWEASIXTUS. "Mwea, S. K (2008), The Way forward in Civil Engineering Training.". In: 1st International Symposium on RE-Orienting Civil Engineering Education and Training held in Mombasa between 25th and 26th September 2008. Longhorn; 2008.


The civil engineering teaching involves provision of sound professional education so that upon graduation the student is able to fit into the various disciplines of civil engineering. These disciplines can be broadly described as transportation, structural, water and waste water engineering. This paper suggests that besides instilling the core engineering knowledge, the teaching of civil engineering should include other subjects which have a big impact in the work of civil engineers. These areas include entrepreneurship, environmental, and social studies. Additionally a study abroad is recommended for those students who are likely to work outside their counties of birth.
