Civil Engineering

The Civil Engineering (CE) program prepares graduates to apply knowledge of mathematics for analysis, design, and management of the civil and infrastructural systems and assume careers as professional engineers, to conduct basic and applied research, to improve the state of knowledge of civil engineering.

Program Educational Objectives:

  1. Graduates are acknowledged in their profession as capable designers, developers, implementers, and professionals who are able to improve integrated systems that include people, materials, information, equipment, and energy using appropriate analytical, computational, and experimental practices.
  2. Graduates continue to apply information technologies in post-graduate work and their professions to the practice of industrial engineering.
  3. Graduates are able to conduct themselves in a professional and ethical manner and provide meaningful contributions in graduate work and industry.
  4. Work and communicate effectively with colleagues at every level in the organization.

Student Outcomes

  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
  4. 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
  5. an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives
  6. an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
  7. an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
