AbstractProfessional practice within civil and environmental engineering demands that practitioners within the field have knowledge of sustainability. Yet, the degree of integration of sustainability in engineering education is varied and inconsistent across and within institutions of higher learning. In order to address this issue, this study investigates one of the potential barriers to integrating sustainability into undergraduate engineering classrooms: educators' beliefs regarding sustainability.
