The Civil Engineering Program offers a Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering. This program provides graduates with quality education, training and skills enabling them to become successful professionals.



The Civil Engineering program aspires to be a leading program by excelling in education, research and community service.



The Civil Engineering program's mission is to produce quality graduates and innovative research through a diverse community of Instructors and students.



The Program Educational Objectives (PEOs) of the “Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering” Program describe what graduates are expected to attain within a few years after graduation:

  • Demonstrate incremental professional competencies in Civil Engineering and related fields
  • Demonstrate an ability to function independently and/or in multidisciplinary teams with relevant communication skills and ethical conduct necessary for professional access
  • Contribute to the progress of local and regional societies



The Students Outcomes (SOs) of the “Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering” Program describe what students are expected to know and be able to do by the time of graduation. These relate to the skills, knowledge, and behaviors that students acquire as they progress through the program:

  1. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
  2. an ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors.
  3. an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
  4. an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts.
  5. an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives.
  6. an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
  7. an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
