The essential of civil engineer

Japan is currently experiencing a change in demographics due to an aging population and a declining birth rate. With the development of AI and the IoT, a portion of the engineering that people were previously responsible for is expected to be mechanized and automated in the future.
This special feature focuses on the transfer of knowledge based on the premise that some technolgies need to be passed on to people while others will be subject to mechanization and automation. We will explore the quintessence of a civil engineer, the technical challenges to be passed onto future engineers, and how knowledge of technology should be transferred. We will establish an understanding of the current situation facing civil engineers, and we hope this special feature will serve as encouragement for determining future courses of action and conveying them to the next generation.
