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.
