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 – Graduates will be employed as civil engineers with designations of at least Engineer-in-Training (EIT) and will demonstrate the ability to work productively in the main areas of civil engineering.
  • Objective 2 - Graduates will demonstrate 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 3 - Graduates will continue to learn and adapt to changing technologies, procedures and concepts in civil engineering.
  • Objective 4 - 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.

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 - Graduates will be employed as architectural engineers or in associated professions related to Architectural Engineering and will demonstrate the ability to work productively in the main areas of Architectural Engineering.  
  • Objective 2 -   Graduates will be recognized for their interdisciplinary perspective to problem-solving and for their team work and leadership skills.
  • Objective 3 - Graduates will be active in a professional society and be involved in continuing education making progress towards professional registration.        
  • Objective 4 - Graduates will contribute to society, the diversity of their company, and their profession.

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

AE and CE Outcome Evaluation  The outcomes follow the same outcomes specified by ABET. The eleven outcomes are listed below:

  1. An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematic
  2. An ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors
  3. An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
  4. An ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts
  5. An ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives 
  6. An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
  7. An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies
