Program Educational Objectives and Student Outcomes

Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering (BSCE)

Program Educational Objectives

Our program educational objectives are reflected in the achievements of our recent alumni. 

  1. Engineering Practice: Recent alumni will successfully engage in the practice of civil engineering within industry, government, and private practice, working toward sustainable solutions in a wide array of technical specialties including construction, environmental, geotechnical, structural, transportation, and water resources. 
  2. Professional Growth: Recent alumni will advance their skills through professional growth and development activities such as graduate study in engineering, professional registration, and continuing education; some graduates transition into other professional fields such as business and law through further education. 
  3. Service: Recent alumni perform service to society and the engineering profession through membership and participation in professional societies, government, educational institutions, civic organizations, and humanitarian endeavors.
