Civil Engineering Objectives and Outcomes
Program Educational Objectives
Within 4 to 6 years of graduation, the Civil Engineering graduates from Louisiana Tech University are expected to have:
PEO-01 Engaged in professional practices, such as construction, environmental, geotechnical, structural, transportation, or water resources engineering by using technical, communication and management skills.
PEO-02 Overseen the design and/or construction of a civil engineering project.
PEO-03 Registered as a professional engineer or developed a strong ability leading to professional licensure.
PEO-04 Demonstrated a commitment to continuing professional development by pursuing formal education in an advanced degree program or by maintaining technical currency through documented CPD activities.
PEO-05 Served in a leadership position in any professional or community organization, or local/state engineering board.
Students completing the Civil Engineering Program will demonstrate:
SO-a An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering.
SO-b An ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data.
SO-c 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.
SO-d An ability to function on multidisciplinary teams.
SO-e An ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems.
SO-f An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility.
SO-g An ability to communicate effectively.
SO-h The broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context.
SO-i A recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning.
SO-j A knowledge of contemporary issues.
SO-k An ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
