The student learning outcomes for the degree are as follows:

  • Graduates will demonstrate basic knowledge in chemistry, mathematics, physics, and engineering
  • Graduates will demonstrate the ability to identify, formulate, and solve civil engineering problems
  • Graduates will demonstrate the ability to design and conduct experiments, interpret and analyze data, and report results
  • Graduates will demonstrate the ability to design a civil engineering system, component, or process that meets desired specifications and requirements
  • Graduates will demonstrate the ability to function on engineering and science laboratory teams as well as on multidisciplinary design teams
  • Graduates will use modern engineering software tools and equipment to analyze civil engineering problems and design civil engineering systems
  • Graduates will demonstrate an understanding of the professional and ethical responsibility
  • Graduates will be able to communicate effectively in both verbal and written forms
  • Graduates will have the confidence for self education and the ability for lifelong learning. They will have a broad education to understand the impact of engineering on society and demonstrate awareness of contemporary issues

Civil engineers design, construct, manage, and improve the built environment that is all around us. They are involved in all aspects of what makes a community work: the roads, the public transit systems, the freight transit systems, the buildings, the drinking water system, and the waste water/storm water system.  They naturally get involved with city or organization planning. IPFW offers state of-the-art knowledge in all areas of civil engineering such as structures, transportation, geotechnical, construction management, and environmental engineering.
