· The ability to "explain professional attitudes relevant to the practice of civil engineering" is specified as a stand-alone outcome of the CEBOK3.
· According to the CEBOK3, professional attitudes include creativity, curiosity, flexibility, and dependability.
· The CEBOK3 also includes the outcome: "explain professional responsibilities relevant to the practice of civil engineering, including safety, legal issues, licensure, credentialing, and innovation." Of the specific professional responsibilities listed in the CEBOK3 outcome, only licensure and safety are included in the CEPC. This reflects ASCE's strong emphasis on both professional licensure and safety, while allowing programs greater flexibility to define and emphasize other professional responsibilities.
