Revitalization of appealing construction industry

This special feature, geared primarily toward students majoring in civil engineering and young people involved in the construction industry, introduces the achieved social contributions and appeals of the construction industry from a variety of perspectives, as well as communicates how the construction is an industry that will always hold a lot of promise for those with the ambition to create.
The following subjects are covered in the articles, with special attention paid to their positive tone and readability: the current state of the construction industry and prospects for solving problems; the roles of the construction industry from the perspective of scientists and expectations for the industry; candid thoughts from mid-level engineers responsible for the next generation gleaned from a roundtable discussion; community contributions in rural areas; the communication of the appeals of construction to children and larger society; technological collaborations with different industries; and ambitious challenges the construction industry is able to undertake in order to contribute toward the construction of more comfortable and more advanced social infrastructure.
We also hope this special feature will lead to those of us involved in the construction industry to discover new appeals in our line of work.
