Construction engineering undergraduate program objectives and student outcomes
The educational objectives of the Construction Engineering program at Arizona State University are to prepare its graduates such that three to five years after graduating they have demonstrated in their professional practice the ability to:
- Lead collaboration with professionals across the AEC community to improve the project delivery process.
- Ethically engage in professional practice
- Demonstrate lifelong learning skills through certifications, professional development, and registration as appropriate for their employers.
- Address sustainably the needs of society through the built environment.
- Successfully balance technical aspects of engineering and practical applications of construction.
Construction Engineering graduates are expected to achieve the following outcomes at graduation:
- An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering
- An ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data on construction engineering applications
- An ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability
- An ability to function on multidisciplinary teams
- An ability to identify, formulate, and solve construction engineering problems.
- An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility
- An ability to communicate effectively
- The broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context
- A recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning
- A knowledge of contemporary issues
- An ability to use techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
