Our civil engineering bachelor of science program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org. As an ABET-accredited program, we have defined program educational objectives (PEOs) and student outcomes. This website lists our PEOs and student outcomes, the assessment and evaluation of which are the foundation of our continuous improvement process.
Program Educational Objectives
Three-to-five years after graduation, our graduates:
Student outcomes describe the characteristics of our students at the time of graduation. For each student outcome, the faculty have chosen performance indicators (what is expected from students), assessment measures (to measure the performance), and performance targets (the expected level of performance), which are available by expanding the appropriate section below. Assessment and evaluation of these student outcomes, orchestrated by the department's assessment coordinator, follows a three-year cycle.
The Department of Civil Engineering has established outcomes for master’s and doctoral students. These outcomes, and the metrics used for their assessment, are provided on the following documents:
