Accreditation

The BS in Civil Engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, www.abet.org.

Program Educational Objectives: BS in Civil Engineering

The program educational objectives are as follows:

  1. 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.
  2. Within a few years of graduation, many of our graduates will be licensed Professional Engineers, and those who so desire will have earned graduate degrees in civil engineering and other fields.

Program Educational Objectives: BS in Environmental Engineering

The program educational objectives are as follows:

  1. The environmental engineering program at Northeastern University prepares graduates to contribute to society as environmental engineers and in other professions that benefit from a technical education.
  2. Within a few years of graduation, many of our graduates will be licensed Professional Engineers, and those who so desire will have earned graduate degrees in environmental engineering and other fields.

Student Outcomes

Our BS programs in Civil Engineering and Environmental Engineering regularly monitor student learning against the outcomes listed below, and use that assessment as part of a continual process of improving the programs. Students graduating from either of our BS programs will display the following 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.
