Almost a quarter of civil engineers feel they lack access to the devices and technology to be at their most effective at work, according to the early findings of New Civil Engineer’s survey on the consumption of technology.
A week into the survey, and 24% of engineers say they lack access to the right technology at work, with 68% believing they have all the technology they need to be most effective.
This contrasts with their personal use of technology, where none of those surveyed feel they are lacking the necessary technology to be best informed.
Training in technology is also emerging as a concern, with just four out of 10 believing their firm views training in technology as a key part of the organisation’s work culture. Yet they are clearly not technophobic themselves: nine out of 10 consider themselves proficient in technology.
The survey will be open for the next month and will be used to build up a comprehensive view of how technology is impacting on civil engineer’s work and home lives.
