Student Outcomes



Civil and Environmental Engineering Student Outcomes


The Southern University Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering has adopted the ABET Criterion 3 Program Outcomes (a) through (k) as our own Program Outcomes.  Our department seeks to ensure that each civil engineer will graduate with the ability to demonstrate the following:

  • An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering


  • An ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data


  • An ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability


  • An ability to function on multi-disciplinary teams


  • An ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems


  • An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility


  • An ability to communicate effectively


  • The broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context


  • A recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning


  • A knowledge of contemporary issues


  • An ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice


These student outcomes in combination with our program educational objectives constitute necessary and sufficient conditions for positive student outcomes and expected future successes.
