LE, T.T. ... et al., 2012. Sustainable construction – an international comparison of civil engineering students. Journal of Civil Engineering and Architecture, 6 (12), pp. 1648 - 1653.
Sustainable construction in the future will be influenced significantly by the beliefs and actions of civil engineering
students studying at university today. A comparative investigation of the appreciation and attitudes regarding sustainable construction
of civil engineering students at The NUCE (National University of Civil Engineering) in Vietnam, and the Universities of
Loughborough and Liverpool in the UK were therefore conducted. Results indicate that students at all three universities appreciate
the importance of the development of sustainable construction and have positive attitudes with regards to sustainability. Construction
design and appropriate use of materials were two issues generally considered the most important with regards to sustainability, but
were also thought to be adequately covered on the courses in all three institutions.
