BSCE Program Mission Statement The mission of the BSCE program offered by the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering is to provide students with undergraduate educational experiences that give them a sound basis for professional practice in civil engineering and a career of life-long learning. Its fundamental goal is for students to learn the fundamental principles of civil engineering, to master engineering methods for solving challenging problems, and to communicate these solutions to the technical and non-technical community. The faculty is dedicated to accomplishing this mission through the integration of teaching, research, and professional practice. BSCE Program Educational Objectives The BSCE program educational objectives are to provide our graduates with the disciplinary breadth in preparation for the following: To enter into professional civil engineering practice as a competent engineer. To attend a top-tier graduate or professional school. To eventually assume a leadership role in civil engineering or a related field BSCE Student Outcomes The BSCE student outcomes have been modeled after the ABET Criterion 3 requirements. They also have been augmented to specifically address the ASCE program criteria for civil engineering programs. Each graduate of the BSCE program should be able to demonstrate: Ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering. Ability to design and conduct experiments as well as to analyze and interpret data. Ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs. Ability to function on multi-disciplinary teams. Ability to identify, formulates, and solves engineering problems. Understanding of professional and ethical responsibility. Ability to communicate effectively. Broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global/societal/economic context. Recognition of the need for and an ability to engage in lifelong learning. Knowledge of contemporary issues. Ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
