Survey | How much does technology impact on your life?

New Civil Engineer has teamed up with Bentley Systems to research our industry’s readiness to exploit and embrace emerging technologies.

Technology is increasingly part of our professional lives. New Civil Engineer relaunched in January this year by asking the question how the industry can deliver differently by making better use of emerging technology.

The research with Bentley Systems continues this theme. A key component to the research is a survey of New Civil Engineer’s professional readership. Click here for the link.

The survey aims to uncover the extent to which the modern civil engineer uses technology both at work and at home, and in doing so discover what the blockers or enablers are. The survey is 40 questions, and should take no more than five to 10 minutes to complete.

New Civil Engineer editor Mark Hansford urged as many readers as possible to take the survey. Click here for the link.

“Adults across the UK now spend an average of one day per week online; 42% say they go online or check apps more than 10 times a day, while around one in 10 access the internet more than 50 times daily,” explained Hansford.

“That’s the general population. But what about us engineers? We know technology is increasingly part of our professional lives. But how much? How do we compare with the general public? It would be great to get as many responses as we can so we can build up a really accurate picture. Thanks in advance for your help!”

The findings will be revealed at Bentley’s Year in Infrastructure 2016 conference in London this November and published in New Civil Engineer in December.
