Mission and Objectives: Civil Engineering Program

The Civil Engineering Undergraduate Program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org/ 

Mission

To provide excellent engineering education that produces: talented and creative engineers; research that advances the state of knowledge in the civil engineering profession; and expertise that serves the public.

Program Educational Objectives (PEOs)

Within a few years of graduation, our graduates will:

•    Be productive and contributing members of the civil engineering profession as practitioners, entrepreneurs, researchers, or teachers;
•    Be engaged in learning, understanding, and applying new ideas as the field develops;
•    Pursue advanced studies if qualified and interested;
•    Promote the safety, health, and welfare of the public and environment through professional practice and civic leadership.

Student Outcomes

The Civil Engineering Program has adopted ABET’s 1-7 student outcomes:

1.    an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
2.    an ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors
3.    an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
4.    an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts
5.    an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives
6.    an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
7.    an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
