PEO's & PO's - School of Civil Engineering

Program Educational Objectives (PEO’s)

The School of Civil Engineering is dedicated to the following program objectives:

The program educational objectives for the Civil Engineering program describe accomplishments that graduates are expected to attain within five years after graduation. In consistency with missions of the University and Department, following Program Educational Objectives were adopted by the Civil Engineering program

  • Graduates will demonstrate peer-recognized technical competency in the analysis, design and construction of Civil Engineering structures.
  • Graduates will demonstrate leadership and initiative to advance professional and organizational goals with commitment to ethical standards of profession, teamwork and respect for diverse cultural background.
  • Graduates will be engaged in ongoing learning and professional development through pursuance of higher education and self-study.
  • Graduates will be committed to creative practice of engineering and other professions in a responsible manner contributing to the socio-economic development of the society.
