B.S. Program 

Civil Engineering (CE): 

 Civil engineers plan, design, construct, operate and maintain public infrastructures such as buildings, dams, bridges, harbors, power facilities, pollution control, facilities, water supply, and transportation systems. The Program Educational Objectives (PEOs) are:

  • Objective 1: Our graduates will be gainfully employed as civil engineers, with designations of, at least, Engineer Interns, and will demonstrate the ability to work productively in the main areas of civil engineering.
  • Objective 2a: Our graduates will demonstrate expertise in a primary area of civil engineering and the ability to function effectively on intra-disciplinary and multi-disciplinary teams, or be in the process of completing post-baccalaureate studies or expanding their proficiency in civil engineering.
  • Objective 2b: Our graduates will continue to learn and adapt to changing technologies, procedures and concepts in civil engineering.
  • Objective 3: Our graduates will demonstrate that they possess the skills and knowledge necessary to function effectively in roles of leadership and service in the communities where they will live and work, and that they are contributing to the welfare, quality of life, protection, and advancement of the community.

Accreditation

The program of study leading to the Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering degree is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.

Architectural Engineering (AE):

Architectural engineers design, construct, and maintain buildings. They design the structural systems, the heating and air conditioning systems, the lighting and electrical systems, and the plumbing and fire protection systems for buildings. They facilities maintenance and renovations of existing buildings. The Program Educational Objectives (PEOs) are:

  • Objective 1: They will be assigned progressively increasing technical responsibility by their supervisor.
  • Objective 2: They will be recognized for their interdisciplinary perspective to problem- solving and for their teamwork and leadership skill.
  • Objective 3: They will be active in a professional society and be involved in continuing education, making progress towards professional registration.
  • Objective 4: They will contribute to society, and to the diversity of their company and their profession by actively mentoring new engineering graduates.
