A Framework for Construction IT Education

Too, Eric G., Betts, Martin, & Dowdle, David (2003) A Framework for Construction IT Education. In CIB W89 BEAR Conference 2003, 9 to 11 April 2003, Salford, UK.


This paper evaluates the need for Construction IT Education and proposes an interdisciplinary approach to construction IT education. A framework based on the interdisciplinary approach is proposed for the Construction IT Course. It is structured by weaving vertical and horizontal integration into the curriculum. The horizontal integration will bring about more breadth in the curriculum. The vertical integration, on the other hand, structures the content in sequence from simple to complex.

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.
