 ABET Accreditation


Accreditation is a voluntary, non-governmental process of peer review. It requires an educational institution or program to meet certain, defined standards or criteria. The Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering programs are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org. In fulfillment of Section II.A.G.a in the ABET Accreditation Policy and Procedure Manual (APPM), the Program Educational Objectives and Student Outcomes for Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering are listed below.

Mission of the Department

The mission of the Department of Civil, Construction and Environmental Engineering is to provide a high quality undergraduate and graduate education in the civil, construction, and environmental areas as well as the advising and other support needed to ensure the student’s academic success and preparation for a productive engineering career. In addition, through research and continuing professional development, the faculty produce, enhance and promote new developments within their areas of expertise for the benefit of society and the furtherance of their profession.

 

CIVIL ENGINEERING PROGRAM

 

Program Educational Objectives

ABET definition: "Program Educational Objectives are broad statements that describe what graduates are expected to attain within a few years of graduation. Program Educational Objectives are based on the needs of the program's constituencies."

Program Educational Objectives are established jointly by our CCEE faculty and our industrial constituencies. They are formulated as follows:

Five years after graduation, the Civil Engineering graduates will:

              Objective 1:  be successful engineers in their respective fields of work;

              Objective 2:  be steadily progressing in their chosen careers through continuous formal and informal professional development;

              Objective 3:  be on their path to leadership positions in their organizations.

 

 Student Outcomes

Student Outcomes are established by ABET Criterion 3.a-k, relevant Program Criteria, and our program constituencies. They are formulated as follows:

By the time of graduation, the Civil Engineering graduates will have:

  1. An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering.

     

  2. The broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context.

     

  3. A knowledge of contemporary issues.

     

  4. 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.

     

  5. An ability to design a and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data.

     

  6. An ability to identify, formulate and solve problems in Civil Engineering.

     

  7. An ability to function on multi-disciplinary teams.

     

  8. An ability to communicate effectively.

     

  9. An ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.

     

  10. An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility.

     

  11. A recognition for the need for, and ability to, engage in life-long learning.

     

  12. An understanding of key concepts and problem-solving processes used in management.

     

  13. An understanding of key concepts and problem-solving processes used in business, public policy, and public administration.

     

  14. An understanding of the role of a leader, leadership principles and attitudes conducive to the effective practice of Civil Engineering.
