ABET Civil Engineering Program Educational Objectives

A few years after graduation, Civil Engineering Program graduates:
1.      As Army leaders, solve complex, multi-disciplinary problems effectively, to include: 
a.       recognizing and fully defining the physical, technological, social, political, business and ethical aspects of a complex problem;
b.      using a methodical process to solve the problem; demonstrating creativity in the formulation of alternative solutions;
c.       using appropriate techniques and tools to enhance the problem-solving process;
d.      working effectively on teams; and
e.       developing high-quality solutions that consider all dimensions of the problem.
2.   Provide appropriate civil engineering expertise to the Army, when called upon to do so
3.   Communicate effectively.
4.   Continue to grow intellectually and professionally - as Army officers and as engineers.
