ABET Accreditation
Accreditation is a voluntary, non-governmental process of peer review. It requires an educational institution or program to meet certain, defined standards or criteria. The Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering programs are accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET), 111 Market Place, Suite 1050, Baltimore, MD 21202-4012 - Telephone: (410) 347-7700.

Mission of the Department
The mission of the Department of Civil, Construction and Environmental Engineering is to provide a high quality undergraduate and graduate education in the civil, construction and environmental areas as well as the advising and other support needed to ensure the student’s academic success and preparation for a productive engineering career.  In addition, through research and continuing professional development, the faculty produce, enhance and promote new developments within their areas of expertise for the benefit of society and the furtherance of their profession.

CIVIL ENGINEERING PROGRAM

Educational Objectives


The Educational Objectives of the Civil Engineering program at SDSU represent skills expected from our graduates approximately 4-5 years after graduation, and are formulated as follows:

  • To provide graduates with the technical knowledge and skills required to practice civil engineering.

  • To provide graduates with an understanding of the ethical, social, legal, and professional issues faced in civil engineering practice.

  • To provide graduates with a solid foundation for graduate studies, continuing education, and life-long professional development.
     Program Outcomes
By the time of graduation the CivE graduates will be able to:

  1. Apply knowledge of mathematics through differential equations, calculus-based physics, chemistry and a life science.

  2. Drawing upon a broad education, explain the global, economic, environmental, and societal impacts of engineering solutions.

  3. Explain how contemporary issues affect the identification, formulation, and solution of engineering problems.

  4. Design a component, system or process in more than one CE context to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability.

  5. Design a civil engineering experiment to meet a need, conduct the experiment, and analyze resulting data.

  6. Apply knowledge of four technical areas appropriate to civil engineering to identify, formulate and solve engineering problems.

  7. Function effectively as a member of a multi-disciplinary team.

  8. Organize and deliver effective verbal, written and graphical communications.

  9. Apply relevant techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.

  10. Analyze a complex situation involving multiple conflicting professional and ethical interests to determine an appropriate course of action.

  11. Recognize the need for and demonstrate an ability to engage in life-long learning and explain the importance of professional licensure.

  12. Explain key concepts and problem-solving processes used in management.

  13. Explain key concepts and problem-solving processes used in business, public policy, and public administration.

  14. Explain the role of a leader, leadership principles and attitudes conducive to the effective practice of Civil Engineering.
