The civil engineering undergraduate program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET. ABET is a nonprofit, non-governmental organization that accredits college and university programs in the disciplines of applied science, computing, engineering, and engineering technology. ABET accreditation, which is achieved through a peer review process, provides assurance that a college or university program meets the quality standards established by the profession for which the program prepares its students.
Program Educational Objectives and Student Outcomes
Program Educational Outcomes for Environmental Engineer M.E. Degree
