BSEnvE Objectives and Outcomes

The Bachelor of Science in Environmental Engineering curriculum is designed to meet the needs of all students. The faculty of the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering first developed the educational objectives for the program in 2006 with the initial development of the degree. Since then, the objectives have been revised periodically to ensure timeliness and applicability to the School’s mission statement.

CEE faculty derived a set of BSEnvE Student Outcomes from the BSEnvE Program Educational Objectives.

BSEnvE Program Educational Objectives:

Graduates will pursue a diverse range of careers that build on their engineering education. During the initial years of their careers, graduates will:

  1. be successfully employed in civil- and environmental-related fields, or other career paths, with prominent companies and organizations in industry, government, non-governmental organizations, and entrepreneurial ventures;
  2. pursue graduate education and research in civil and environmental engineering, and other fields;
  3. be global collaborators, participating in interdisciplinary and culturally diverse teams, and advancing in leadership positions in the profession;
  4. continue professional development by obtaining professional licensure or certifications, continuing education credits, or post-graduate study;
  5. be active in service to the profession and to the State of Georgia, the nation, and the world.

BSEnvE Student Outcomes
