Sustainable construction in the future will be influenced significantly by the beliefs and actions of Civil Engineer students studying at university today. This paper presents a comparative investigation of the appreciation and attitudes regarding sustainable construction of final year Civil Engineering students currently at The National University of Civil Engineering (NUCE) in Vietnam, and the universities of Loughborough and Liverpool in the UK. Preliminary results indicate that students at all three universities appreciate the importance of the development of sustainable construction and have positive attitudes with regards to sustainability. Design and Materials were two issues generally considered the most important and were also thought to be covered adequately on the courses.
