I find very unlikely that civil, environmental and bio engineers will 
find of any use learning how to write program for their phones, or for 
developing web applications. On the contrary they may need to develop 
typical computer applications, where a traditional programming language 
provides the required efficiency, and RAD can be very important bonus, 
to get it quickly done.

I have always found that following no matter what the most "modern" 
technology is totally wrong and misleading. One should be aware of what 
is available, of course, but then one should always select the most 
"appropriate" technology, and not be influenced by what is "modern".

Tombstones are still made of stone, a stone age technology, just because 
it still turns out to be the most appropriate technology to cover a grave.
