ABET Civil Engineering (CE)

The Rutgers University - New Brunswick program in Civil Engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, www.abet.org.

CE Program Educational Objectives

The current educational objectives of the Civil Engineering program are:

  • Graduates will experience successful careers in the civil engineering profession that incorporates life-long learning leading to professional licensure and/or advanced degrees.
  • Graduates will communicate effectively in oral, visual, and written means and have professional and ethical responsibility in the practice of civil engineering.
  • Graduates will demonstrate a record of individual and team accomplishments in developing creative and sound engineering solutions to practical problems that meet professional, societal, sustainability, and global challenges.

CE Student Outcomes

Students from the Civil Engineering program will attain (by the time of graduation):

1. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics

2. an ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors

3. an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences

4. an ability to 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

5. an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives

6. an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions

7. an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies

8. adequately learned basic concepts of business, management; understand and learn importance of leadership in discussions and public policy

9. adequately learned and practiced key engineering concepts and ‘rules of thumb’

10. an ability to read, understand and interpret standards, codes and manuals of engineering practice

11. proficiency in four recognized major civil engineering disciplines
