BS Civil Engineering Program Objectives & Outcomes

Program Educational Objectives (PEOs)

The graduates of the program of Bachelors of Civil Engineering will be equipped with skills to demonstrate an understanding of key technologies applicable within the main areas of Civil Engineering. The main objectives of this program are to produce engineers with:

  PEO-1The graduates will play an effective role with quality assurance while practicing civil engineering and will become experts at national and international level.
  PEO-2The graduates will enhance and improve their knowledge and skills through professional growth and development activities.
  PEO-3The graduates will serve the society and engineering profession with ethics considering social, environmental, national and global concerns.

Program Learning Outcomes (PLOs)

At the end of this program, the students are expected to have the ability to:

  PLO-1Engineering KnowledgeAn ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals and an engineering specialization to the solution of complex engineering problems.
  PLO-2 Problem AnalysisAn ability to identify, formulate, research literature, and analyze complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences and engineering sciences.
  PLO-3 Design/Development
of Solutions
An ability to design solutions for complex engineering problems and design systems, components or processes that meet specified needs with appropriate consideration for public health and safety, cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.
  PLO-4InvestigationAn ability to investigate complex engineering problems in a methodical way including literature survey, design and conduct of experiments, analysis and interpretation of experimental data, and synthesis of information to derive valid conclusions.
  PLO-5 Modern Tool UsageAn ability to create, select and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools, including prediction and modeling, to complex engineering activities, with an understanding of the limitations.
  PLO-6 The Engineer and SocietyAn ability to apply reasoning informed by contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to professional engineering practice and solution to complex engineering problems.
