The Department of Civil, Environmental, and Construction Engineering has adopted a straightforward set of educational objectives for its B.S.C.E. graduates. The definition of “objective” in this context means our expectations for our graduates’ accomplishments several years after completing the B.S.C.E..
The Program Educational Objectives define future roles for which we are preparing our graduates
The Program Educational Objectives for the B.S.C.E. Program are as follows
- Graduates will meet the expectations of employers of Civil Engineers.
- Graduates will continue their professional development through graduate study if qualified or continuing education.
The Student Outcomes define the knowledge and skills that will be mastered by our graduates.
General Engineering Program Outcomes
To enable the Civil Engineering students to accomplish the educational objectives, the curriculum is designed to assure that students at the time of graduation, would be able to
- Apply knowledge of mathematics, science and engineering.
- Design and conduct experiments and analyze and interpret data.
- Design a system, component or process to meet the constituencies needs within realistic constraints.
- Function on multidisciplinary teams.
- Identify, formulate and solve engineering problems.
- Understand professional and ethical responsibility.
- Communicate effectively.
- Understand the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental and societal context.
- Engage in life-long learning.
- Possess knowledge of contemporary issues.
- Use techniques, skills and modern engineering tools.
Civil Engineering Specific Program Outcomes
By the time of graduation, Civil Engineering students can
- Apply knowledge of mathematics through differential equations, calculus-based physics, chemistry, and at least one additional area of basic science.
- Apply probability and statistics to address uncertainty; analyze and solve problems in at least four technical areas appropriate to civil engineering.
- Conduct experiments in at least two technical areas of civil engineering and analyze and interpret the resulting data.
- Design a system, component, or process in at least two civil engineering contexts; include principles of sustainability in design.
- Explain basic concepts in project management, business, public policy, and leadership; analyze issues in professional ethics; and explain the importance of professional licensure.
