Program outcomes describe what students are expected to know or be able to do by the time of graduation. They relate to the skills, knowledge, and behaviors that student acquire while completing the academic program. Program outcomes are formulated to foster attainment of program objectives. The graduates are expected to have:

  • An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics through differential equations; probability and statistics; calculus-based physics; general chemistry; and engineering science in the context of civil engineering applications.
  • An ability to design and conduct laboratory experiments, as well as to critically analyze and interpret data, in two or more recognized major civil engineering areas, such as structures, transportation, water resources, and environmental.
  • 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, constructability, and sustainability.
  • An ability to function in multidisciplinary teams.
  • An ability to identify, formulate, and solve civil engineering problems in a minimum of four recognized major civil engineering areas.
  • An understanding of professional and ethical responsibilities of civil engineers in relation to public and private institutions and in the context of civil engineering infrastructure systems.
  • An ability to communicate effectively, orally and in writing.
  • A broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context.
  • Recognition of the need for professional licensure and life-long learning.
  • Knowledge of contemporary issues.
  • An ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for civil engineering practice, and an understanding of professional practice issues such as project management and interactions between the development, design, and construction professions.
