BS CIVIL ENGINEERING
The Civil Engineering program aims to provide the highest quality, broad-based technical, scientific, and liberal education to enable students to qualify for graduate or advanced education and professional work in a wide range of civil engineering activities.
It adopts an outcomes-based learning experience program covering structural engineering, geotechnical engineering, transportation engineering, water resources engineering, construction engineering and management and environmental engineering.
The program’s thrust is to create and maintain an outcomes-based educational environment that shall enable graduates to practice as successful civil engineers for the advancement of society and to promote professionalism in engineering practice.
PROGRAM EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES
Within the five years after graduation, the graduates of Civil Engineering program shall have:
- Undertaken, singly or in teams, projects that show ability to solve complex engineering problems;
- Had substantial involvement in projects that take into consideration safety, health, environmental concerns and the public welfare, partly through adherence to required codes and laws;
- Demonstrated professional success via promotions and/or positions of increasing responsibility;
- Demonstrated life-long learning via progress toward completion of an advanced degree, professional development/continuing education courses, or industrial training courses;
- Exhibited professional behavior and attitude in engineering practice; and
- Initiated and implemented actions toward the improvement of engineering practice.
ABET 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
