This paper reviews some recent discussion on the role of universities in the education and training of civil engineers and considers the guidelines offered by the UK Joint Board of Moderators on design in civil engineering degree programmes. Some discussion of other issues affecting the education of civil engineers is given. It is argued that emphasis should be given to the education of engineers at university and how this might be achieved in design is considered.
