Program Educational Objectives

The Program Educational Objectives of the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering are to bring together the faculty, staff, and capital resources to:

  • Prepare our students for successful and productive engineering careers with attention to standards, effective communication, and for future licensure.
  • Prepare our students for the successful pursuit of graduate studies in engineering or other professional fields.
  • Prepare our students to be active participants in professional engineering organizations.

Student Outcomes

  • An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
  • 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.
  • An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
  • 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.
