This paper evaluates three current approaches adopted by construction educators to address the need for future IT knowledge and skills for construction professional. The three approaches are (1) Continuing Professional Development, (2) Incorporating IT modules into existing construction courses, and (3) Interdisciplinary courses with IT as the main integrating theme. This paper concludes that the Interdisciplinary approach with IT as the main integrating theme is the best way forward to equip future construction graduates with IT knowledge and skills that are critical for the development of the construction industry.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
