Inspired by a tradition of access and excellence, the mission of the Civil Engineering undergraduate program is to educate and prepare a diverse body of undergraduate students to be leaders in the Civil Engineering profession, as practicing engineers, engineering managers, researchers or educators. Our graduates will be technically capable and intellectually motivated, and will possess the communications skills and the understanding of economic, societal and environmental impacts needed to address modern civil engineering challenges.
Program Educational Objectives
Program educational objectives are broad statements that describe what graduates are expected to attain within a few years of graduation. Program educational objectives are based on the needs of our program’s constituencies, which include our alumni, their employers, our faculty and our Advisory Board.
- Advance in a career as a professional in Civil Engineering or in a related field;
- Uphold the highest level of integrity in decision-making;
- Understand and meet the evolving multidisciplinary challenges and needs of the multiple stakeholders and communities in which they work and live;
- Build on their academic preparation through lifelong learning, graduate study, engagement in professional societies, and/or professional licensure; and
- Act as stewards of the profession who protect and advance the health, safety, and welfare of the public.
In order to ensure that graduates of the Civil Engineering program achieve the program educational objectives listed above, the program aims to instill the following outcomes associated with courses taken during the years of study leading to the bachelor degree:
- 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 the 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 judgements, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and social contexts;
An ability to function collaboratively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives;
An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgement to draw conclusions; and
An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
