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

Student Outcomes

The Student Outcomes define the knowledge and skills that will be mastered by our graduates.

General Engineering Program Outcomes
