Program Education Outcomes

Program educational outcomes are broad statements that describe the career and professional accomplishments that the program is preparing the graduates to achieve. Program learning outcomes pave the way to the attainment of program objectives. Therefore, the Civil Engineering student outcomes have been cross referenced to the program educational objectives.

Within three to five years of graduation, the program expects that Civil Engineering graduates will have:

  • Become competent and engaged engineering professionals, applying their technical and managerial skills in the planning, design, construction, operation or maintenance of the built environment and global infrastructure, and utilizing their skills to analyze and design systems, specify project methods and materials, perform cost estimates and analyses, and manage technical activities in support of civil engineering projects.
  • Initiated an active program of life-long learning, including studies leading to professional licensure or an advanced degree in engineering , that provides for continued development of their technical abilities and management skills, and attainment of professional expertise.
  • Developed their communication skills in oral, written, visual and graphic modes when working as team members or leaders, so they can actively participate in their communities and their profession.
  • Established an understanding of professionalism, ethics, quality performance, public policy, safety, and sustainability that allows them to be professional leaders and contributors to society when solving engineering problems and producing civil engineering solutions.
