News and Announcements
San Diego State University (SDSU) has embarked on an interdisciplinary area of excellence (AoE) program, which is a water-focused initiative that includes multiple disciplines across campus. As part of this effort, the Environmental Engineering Program in the Department of Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering at SDSU now invites applications for a tenure-track position at the Assistant Professor level in the area of water reuse starting August 2017. The Department is strongly committed to excellence in both research and education at the undergraduate and graduate levels. SDSU embraces the teacher-scholar model. Therefore, candidates should be active and productive researchers with strengths in the biological, chemical, and physical aspects of environmental engineering and have the ability to enhance and sustain our core environmental engineering curriculum. Review of applications will begin on October 31, 2016 and will continue until the position is filled. Applicants must apply via Interfolio at http://apply.interfolio.com/37493

Accreditation is a voluntary, non-governmental processs of peer review. It requires an educational institution or program to meet certain, defined standards or criteria. The Environmental Engineering program is accreditated by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org. In fulfillment of Section II.A.G.a in the ABET Accreditation Policy and Procedure Manual (APPM), the Program Educational Objectives and Student Outcomes for Environmental Engineering are listed below.
Program Educational Objectives
ABET definition: "Program Educational Objectives are broad statements that describe what graduates are expected to attain within a few years of graduation. Program Educational Objectives are based on the needs of the program's constituencies."
Program Educational Objectives are established jointly by our CCEE faculty and our industrial constituencies. They are formulated as follows:
- Objective 1: be successful engineers in their respective fields of work;
- Objective 2: be steadily progressing in their chosen careers through continuous formal and informal professional development;
- Objective 3: be on their path to leadership positions in their organizations.
Student Outcomes are established by ABET Criterion 3.a-k, relevant Program Criteria, and our program constituencies. They are formulated as follows:
By the time of graduation, the Environmental Engineering graduates will have:
- An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering.
- The broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context.
- A knowledge of contemporary issues.
- An ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability.
- An ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data.
- An ability to identify, formulate and solve problems in Environmental Engineering.
- An ability to function on multi-disciplinary teams.
- An ability to communicate effectively.
- An ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
- An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility.
- A recognition of the need for, and ability to, engage in life-long learning.
- An understanding of key concepts and problem-solving processes used in management.
- An understanding of key concepts and problem-solving processes used in business, public policy, and public administration.
- An understanding of the role of a leader, leadership principles and attitudes conducive to the effective practice of Environmental Engineering.
