Academic Quality

The B.S. Civil Engineering Program is Accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET.

The BSCE Objectives were chosen to be consistent with the missions of the College and the University, to reflect the BSCE program's need to provide proficiency in the recognized major areas of Civil Engineering, and to provide our graduates with the skills necessary for professional practice and growth.

The objectives make up the mission statement of the CEE department and drive all the efforts of the BSCE program. The objectives tell the world what the BSCE program is trying to accomplish. Many of the objectives are far reaching. The only way to determine if the objectives are being met is to study the long-term performance of our graduates after they leave the BSCE program.

The Program Educational Objectives of the B.S. Civil Engineering Program are:

  • Graduates earnestly pursue professional careers in civil engineering and related fields.
  • Graduates innovatively meet engineering challenges, including those of cold climates and remote locations, working independently and in teams.
  • Graduates actively serve the professional community, pursue licensure and lifelong learning, and demonstrate high ethical standards.

The Student Outcomes of the B.S. Civil Engineering Program are:

  • an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering
  • an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data
  • an ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability
