Opening Thought
 “Our greatest obligation to our
 [future civil engineering
 professionals] is to prepare
 them to understand and to deal
 effectively with the world in
 which they will live and not with
 the world we have known or the
 world we would prefer to have.”
               - Grayson Kirk (1903-1997)
                       Educator

Our Profession and Our Vision
           Entrusted by society to create a
            sustainable world and
            enhance the global quality of
            life, civil engineers serve
            competently, collaboratively,
            and ethically as master:
           - planners, designers,
            constructors, and operators
            of the built environment
           - stewards of the natural
            environment
           - integrators of ideas and
            technology
           - managers of risk and
            uncertainty
           - leaders in shaping policy

       OVERVIEW:
 BOK Experiential Fulfillment
   Committee (BOKExFC)
• CHALLENGE – ALIGN EXPERIENTIAL
  OUTCOMES WITH THE --
   PRACTICAL REALITIES OF AN ENGINEER
    INTERN’S PRE-LICENSURE EXPERIENCE.

   LICENSING PROCESS.

• FOCUS – ON 15 (of the 24) BOK2 OUTCOMES
  WTH EXPERIENTIAL EXPECTATIONS.
        BOKExFC
 “PROBLEM” TO OVERCOME
• ACCUMULATION & VALIDATION OF
  ACCEPTABLE EXPERIENCE IS A
  REQUIREMENT FOR LICENSURE.

• EXPERIENCE REQUIREMENTS ARE:
 POORLY ARTICULATED.

 NON-UNIFORM ACROSS JURISDICTIONS.

 GENERALLY LACKING IN STRUCTURE.
   BOKExFC -- CHARGE
   CAP 3 recruited practitioners from a diverse cross-
    section of the profession — especially individuals
 involved with the development of engineer interns (EI).

Develop a stand-alone set of experience
guidelines for the civil engineer intern –
to include provisions for reporting,
mentorship, assessment, and validation
of the experiential outcomes.
