Mission and Objectives

The objectives of the civil and environmental engineering program are to provide students with a broad and thorough education in civil and environmental engineering fundamentals, applications, and design preparing graduates for the practice of civil and environmental engineering at the professional level. Students are equipped with the confidence and skills necessary to meet the technical and social challenges of the future and, if they choose, to continue their studies at the graduate level.

The CEE program’s educational objectives are consistent with the mission of the university and the School of Engineering, and are as follows:

1. Graduates will be prepared for successful careers in the civil engineering profession with a commitment to life-long learning for personal and professional enrichment and to meet societal and global challenges.

2. Graduates should be applying the highest standards of personal and professional integrity and ethical responsibility in the practice of civil and environmental engineering.

3. Graduates should be well versed in several areas of civil and environmental engineering, such as structural, geotechnical, transportation, construction, water resources and environmental engineering, and are able to identify, formulate, and solve a wide range of civil and environmental engineering problems using modern engineering tools and techniques

4. Graduates should demonstrate a record of individual and team accomplishments in developing creative and sound engineering solutions to practical problems that incorporate a broad range of considerations such as economic, environmental, ethical, social, and policy implications.
