The spread of the digital transformation, which started with Industry 3.0, along with the developing technology, has affected the construction and education sectors as well as different professions and industry groups. It is seen that the use of technologies such as building information modeling (BIM), cyber-physical systems (CPS), laser scanners, virtual reality, augmented reality and artificial intelligence has increased with Construction 4.0, especially in the design and construction management stages. It is inevitable that students, who are in these technological and digital transformations, need different methods in terms of perceiving information compared to other generations. While traditional methods are effective for the Y generation and the old, traditional methods lose their effect in the Z and future generations. This situation necessitated a change in education methods and revealed the concept of Education 4.0. In this study, new methods used in civil engineering education, especially in the last 10 years, were investigated. The results obtained from the use of the methods found as a result of the research in civil engineering education, and the advantages and disadvantages of these methods were examined.
