The Civil Engineering program aims to provide the highest quality, broad-based technical, scientific, and liberal education to enable students to qualify for graduate or advanced education and professional work in a wide range of civil engineering activities.
It adopts an outcomes-based learning experience program covering structural engineering, geotechnical engineering, transportation engineering, water resources engineering, construction engineering and management and environmental engineering.
The program’s thrust is to create and maintain an outcomes-based educational environment that shall enable graduates to practice as successful civil engineers for the advancement of society and to promote professionalism in engineering practice.
PROGRAM EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES
