Objectives & Outcomes


The Civil Engineering BS program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, https://www.abet.org, under the General Criteria and Program Criteria for the Civil and Similarly Named Engineering Programs.

Program Educational Objectives

The Department of Civil, Environmental, and Construction Engineering has adopted a straightforward set of educational objectives for the Civil Engineering BS graduates. The definition of "objective" in this context means our expectations for our graduates' accomplishments several years after completing the Civil Engineering BS program.

The Program Educational Objectives define future roles for which we are preparing our graduates.

The Program Educational Objectives for the Civil Engineering BS program are as follows:

  • Graduates will attain leadership positions in their professional careers.
  • Graduates will continue to develop professionally by pursuing professional registration.
  • Graduates will contribute to global and local community development through civil engineering practice.

Student Outcomes

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

Student outcomes are:

  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.
