INTRODUCTION

The 6th International Workshop on Design in Civil and Environmental Engineering will be held at the University of Cagliari during November 9 - 10 - 11, 2017

We are pleased to invite you in Cagliari (Italy – Sardinia) to the 6th International Workshop on Design for Civil and Environmental Engineering where we will explore the nature of design in civil and environmental engineering and establish the foundation for civil design research. Design means to analyse, compare, manage and connect a large amount of data in order to develop, expand and materialize the starting idea, which was born to solve the initial problem. In this process, the engineer is the bridge of connection between the creative moment and its real implementation. The evolutionary characteristic of the design procedure often requires an iterative approach. It improves the solution step by step by means of different professional figures who act together to obtain the best result. Indeed, it is never an individual task but a team job in which collaboration is the most powerful key of success. In this complex reality, the potential of modern technology highlights the needs of a strong background knowledge capable of supporting and developing the engineering sensibility to control the whole design procedure. Actually, its dynamic evolution, constantly pushed by the new science innovations, represents a current challenge for engineering schools. They have to find the most effective way to transmit the necessary skills to nowadays students to let them become the future bridge of connection for new engineering solutions. The Design in Civil and Environmental Engineering (DCEE) series of workshops explore what it would mean for design to be a discipline within Civil and Environmental Engineering and the implication for interdisciplinary design in corporation with other fields such as Architecture, Urban Planning, Topography and more.
