Forthcoming and Online First Articles
International Journal of Collaborative Engineering
Forthcoming articles have been peer-reviewed and accepted for publication but are pending final changes, are not yet published and may not appear here in their final order of publication until they are assigned to issues. Therefore, the content conforms to our standards but the presentation (e.g. typesetting and proof-reading) is not necessarily up to the Inderscience standard. Additionally, titles, authors, abstracts and keywords may change before publication. Articles will not be published until the final proofs are validated by their authors.
Forthcoming articles must be purchased for the purposes of research, teaching and private study only. These articles can be cited using the expression "in press". For example: Smith, J. (in press). Article Title. Journal Title.

Online First articles are published online here, before they appear in a journal issue. Online First articles are fully citeable, complete with a DOI. They can be cited, read, and downloaded. Online First articles are published as Open Access (OA) articles to make the latest research available as early as possible.

Abstract: Professional environmental engineers and landscape architects routinely collaborate in practice. However, rarely do university students pursuing these two professions interact in an academic setting. The purpose was to analyze the impact of cross-disciplinary collaboration on student learning between groups in environmental engineering and landscape architecture. This study analyzed perspectives from students, teaching assistants, and instructors using open-ended survey questions, Likert scale ratings, instructor observations and engineering final project assessments. Faculty, students and stakeholders ultimately felt that the interaction was beneficial. Instructors felt the collaboration generated potential for higher quality project work compared to previous coursework developed independently. Our results encourage curricula development to foster interactions between landscape architecture and environmental engineering students.
