CEE Program Goals & Objectives

Civil Engineering Program Goals and Objectives

The goal of the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering is to provide its students with a well balanced, high quality education in four principal areas of civil engineering: environmental, geotechnical, structural, and transportation engineering that will permit them to practice civil engineering at a professional level, that will prepare them for graduate study, that will promote life long learning and continuing professional development and that will provide them with the skills and knowledge necessary to develop into active contributors to the economic and social vitality of the region.
To this end, the Educational Objectives of the CEE Department are:
  1. Graduates, who wish to pursue professional employment, will obtain a position in Civil Engineering or related engineering field, and will be successful in that position.
  2. Graduates will pursue lifelong learning, professional development, and registration as appropriate for their employers.
  3. Graduates will engage in service activities related to their profession.
