Program Level Student Learning Outcomes

  1. Recognize ethical and profesional responsibilities in different engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts.
  2. Identify, analyze and solve civil engineering problems by applying principles of engineering and science.
  3. Apply the mathematical functions of intergration and differentiation to solve engineering problems.
  4. Prepare drawings and 3D models for civil engineering projects using computer-aided design systems.  (Prepare plans, detailed dimensional drawings, design layouts and 3D dimensional models for structures, installations, and construction projects such as highways, sewage disposal systems, and dikes, using computer-aided systems.)
  5. Review rough sketches, drawings, specifications, and other engineering data received from civil engineers to ensure that they conform to design concepts.
  6. Inspect facilities or installations to determine their environmental impact.  Record laboratory or field data, including numerical data, test results, photographs, or summaries of visual observations.
  7. Conduct topographic survey and prepare map of land surveyed, including site features, water location and other relevant information.  Prepare charts, drawings, and survey notes.
  8. Analyze Geographic Informaion Systems (GIS) data to identify spatial relationships and display results of analyses, using maps, graphs, or tabular data.
