Civil Engineering Program objectives and student outcomes

Program objectives:

Our graduates will be:

  • valued members of their organization and successful practicing engineers.
  • complex problem solvers who can apply critical, sound, and ethical judgment while designing sustainable engineering systems for our society.
  • effective communicators providing quality interpersonal and leadership skills.
  • steadfast in pursing personal and professional growth opportunities (e.g., continuing education, advanced degrees, professional licensing, membership in professional societies, etc.) to foster personal and organizational growth.
  • engaged in service to their profession and their communities, consistent with the Benedictine tradition to serve

Student outcomes:

Student outcomes for the Civil Engineering Program are:

  1. an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering
  2. an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data
  3. 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
  4. an ability to function on multidisciplinary teams
  5. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems
  6. an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility
  7. an ability to communicate effectively
  8. the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context
  9. a recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning
  10. a knowledge of contemporary issues
  11. an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
