LE, T.T. ... et al., 2011. A comparative view of UK and Vietnamese civil engineering students on sustainable construction. Presented at CIB W-107 International Conference on Construction in Developing Countries: Innovation and Sustainable Construction in Developing Countries, 1st-3rd November 2011, Hanoi, Vietnam.
Sustainable construction in the future will be influenced significantly by the beliefs and actions
of Civil Engineer students studying at university today. This paper presents a comparative investigation
of the appreciation and attitudes regarding sustainable construction of final year Civil Engineering
students currently at The National University of Civil Engineering (NUCE) in Vietnam, and the universities
of Loughborough and Liverpool in the UK. Preliminary 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. Design and Materials were two issues generally considered the most
important and were also thought to be covered adequately on the courses.
