Civil Engineering Objectives and Outcomes
The six Educational Objectives of the Civil Engineering Program are:
CvENE01: To produce graduates who have developed the skills required to design civil engineering systems and facilities, including the graduates' abilities to formulate problems, to think creatively, the synthesize information, and to work collaboratively in teams. The civil engineering program at Louisiana Tech University will concentrate undergraduate instruction in areas of water resources/environmental, structures, transportation, and geotechnical engineering.
CvENE02: To produce graduates who are trained thoroughly in methods of analysis, including the mathematical and computational skills appropriate for civil engineers to use when problem solving.
CvENE03: To produce graduates who are prepared for life-long learning and successful careers as civil engineers.
CvENE04: To produce graduates who are taught to use current experimental and data analysis techniques for civil engineering applications.
CvENE05: To produce graduates who have developed oral and written communication skills that allow students to present information effectively.
CvENE06: To produce graduates with understanding of their professional and ethical responsibilities.
