The Bachelor of Science Program in Civil Engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.

Educational Objectives

The Civil Engineering program at Northeastern University prepares graduates to contribute to society as civil engineers and in other professions that benefit from a technical education. Within a few years of graduation, many of our graduates will be working in responsible engineering positions that will qualify them to take the PE exam, and will be prepared to successfully pursue advanced study in civil engineering and other fields.

Student Outcomes

The program’s learning outcomes represent the knowledge and skills needed, apart from those that students are expected to be gained after graduation via professional experience and/or graduate education, for a student to achieve the program’s educational objectives.

The program’s learning outcomes, also called student outcomes, are listed below. They comprehend the ABET-mandated student outcomes (a) through (k). Outcomes (g) and (i) have been subdivided into two learning outcomes each in order to facilitate better targeted assessment, and two additional outcomes, (l) and (m), have been added.

a.an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering
b.an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data
c.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
d.an ability to function on multidisciplinary teams
e.an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems
f.an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility
g.1an ability to communicate effectively in writing
g.2an ability to communicate effectively in oral presentations
h.the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context
i.1a recognition of the need to engage in life-long learning
i.2an ability to engage in life-long learning
j.a knowledge of historical and contemporary issues
k.an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice
l.an ability to formulate and compare alternatives using appropriate methodologies
m.an ability to use career management skills
