Program Accreditation


The Civil Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET, http://www.abet.org. ABET is a specialized accrediting board recognized by the Council for Higher Education and/or the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Education.

Program Mission

The mission of the Oregon Tech Civil Engineering program is to prepare students for professional practice. To be prepared to practice as professionals, engineers must be able to act responsibly and ethically, understand their limits and the limits of the tools they use, communicate effectively, work well in teams, and, amid the changing landscape of the field of civil engineering, be able to pursue graduate-level education.

 

Program Educational Objectives

 

The alumni from the BSCE program at Oregon Tech should be able to:

  • Practice in Civil Engineering or a related field.
  • Pursue advanced or continuing education in Civil Engineering or a related field. 
  • Act as responsible, effective, and ethical citizens
  • Communicate effectively.
  • Collaborate effectively. 

Program Student Learning Outcomes

 
  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. 

Summary of Program Student Learning Outcomes

 

During each academic year, the Civil Engineering faculty formally assessed the student learning outcomes summarized in the annual program assessment report. Additional details can be found in department assessment records.
