Civil Engineering ABET Accreditation

The Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.  Program-specific Enrollment and Award Data is available here

Program Objectives

The curriculum of the UAA CE program is designed to produce graduates who, within five years of graduation, will:

  1. Practice with responsible charge in the civil engineering sub-disciplines of water resources, geotechnical, structural, transportation and environmental engineering, with emphasis on cold region issues. Responsible charge is as defined by the Alaska Professional Engineering licensing regulations.
  2. Make contributions in project planning, preparation, implementation, design and presentation in a team environment in sub-discipline areas.
  3. Demonstrate and update their competency via professional registration, continuing education, graduate study and professional service to their communities.
  4. Exemplify the ethical standards of the profession.

Program Student Learning Outcomes

Graduates of the UAA civil engineering program will have an ability to:

  • Identify, formulate, and solve complex civil engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics;
  • Apply civil engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as cold regions, global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors;
  • Communicate effectively with a range of audiences;
  • Recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts;
  • Function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives;
  • Develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions; and
  • Acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
