ABET Accreditation Information and Graduation Data
The Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering (BSCE) degree offered by the Civil Engineering Program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, https://www.abet.org.
Graduation data for The Civil Engineering (CE) degree program is included on the UVA Engineering Undergraduate Enrollment and Graduates webpage.
Each degree program has defined Program Educational Objectives (PEOs), which are broad statements that describe the career and professional accomplishments that the program is preparing graduates to achieve. In addition, each program has defined Student Outcomes (SOs), which are are narrower statements that describe what students are expected to know and be able to do by the time of graduation. These relate to the skills, knowledge, and behaviors that students acquire in their matriculation through the program.
Program Educational Objectives for the BSCE
- To provide graduates with the technical competencies and insight necessary to practice civil engineering and have an impact on the profession and pursue professional licensure.
- To provide a solid foundation for successful study at leading graduate and professional institutions.
- To promote a breadth of abilities and knowledge, including quantitative and analytical skills, communication skills and social insight, to allow graduates to pursue careers in a diversity of fields including engineering, business and management.
- To prepare graduates for a lifetime of learning, for leadership, and for service to the profession and society.
Student Outcomes for the BSCE
The BS in Civil Engineering program at the University of Virginia enables students to achieve, by the time of graduation:
- an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
- 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.
- an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
- 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.
