Construction engineering undergraduate program objectives and student outcomes

Program Educational Objectives:

are to prepare its graduates such that three to five years after graduating they have demonstrated in their professional practice that they can:

  1. Lead collaboration with professionals across the Architectural/Engineering/Construction (AEC) community to improve the project delivery process.
  2. Ethically engage in professional practice
  3. Demonstrate lifelong learning skills through certifications, professional development, and registration as appropriate for their employers.
  4. Address sustainably the needs of society through the built environment.
  5. Successfully balance technical aspects of engineering and practical applications of construction.
  6. Value diversity and be inclusive within the work environment.


Student Outcomes:

Construction Engineering graduates are expected to achieve the following student outcomes at graduation:

  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 judgements, 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
