BSCE Objectives and Outcomes

Assistant Professor Lauren Stewart works with students to test balsa wood bridges as part of one her classes.The Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering curriculum is designed to meet the needs of all students. In 1994, the faculty of the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering first developed the program's educational objectives as part of the School’s strategic planning process. Since then, the objectives have been revised periodically to ensure timeliness and applicability to the School’s mission statement.

CEE faculty derived a set of BSCE Student Outcomes from the BSCE Program Educational Objectives.

BSCE Program Educational Objectives:

Graduates will pursue a diverse range of careers that build on their engineering education. During the initial years of their careers, graduates will:

  1. be successfully employed in civil- and environmental-related fields, or other career paths, with prominent companies and organizations in industry, government, non-governmental organizations, and entrepreneurial ventures;
  2. pursue graduate education and research in civil and environmental engineering, and other fields;
  3. be global collaborators, participating in interdisciplinary and culturally diverse teams, and advancing in leadership positions in the profession;
  4. continue professional development by obtaining professional licensure or certifications, continuing education credits, or post-graduate study;
  5. be active in service to the profession and to the State of Georgia, the nation, and the world.

BSCE Student Outcomes

Upon graduation, students will have attained:

  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.
