The mission of the Civil Engineering Department is to provide the highest quality technical education, which is grounded in the arts and sciences, by faculty dedicated to exceptional teaching and extraordinary care for individual students. The department will strive to develop graduates who will be effective members of engineering teams, managers of engineering projects, and serve as leaders in the civil engineering discipline and within the broader community of church and society.
Program Educational Objectives – 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.
The Program Educational Objectives (EO) help to direct and measure the success of the Civil Engineering Program in accomplishing its mission. Review of the Educational Objectives is an integral part of the annual assessment process.
Within five to ten years of graduation, civil engineering alumni will have:
1. Attained a position within the civil engineering community through which they are able to make a positive contribution to the engineering profession and society as a whole;
2. Participated in continuing education activities, such as courses taken for advanced degrees, seminars, workshops, and conferences, demonstrating their commitment to life-long learning; and
3. Advanced in their profession. Advancement may be demonstrated through achievements such as promotions and licensure.
