The Civil Engineering (CE) and Environmental Engineering (ENVE) undergraduate degree programs are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET). As part of its continuous improvement process, each program regularly assesses student learning with respect to specific outcomes and performance metrics. These outcomes and performance metrics have been developed for each program based on an established mission and a set of educational objectives.
The mission of the Civil Engineering Program is to prepare its students for successful careers in civil engineering by providing a high quality, practice-oriented education that emphasizes design project experiences, "hands-on" laboratory activities, and teamwork.
The Civil Engineering Program's faculty, in consultation with engineering practitioners and alumni, have developed five educational objectives to support the program mission. The educational objectives represent the goals that we have for our graduates after they leave Cal Poly. The educational objectives of the Civil Engineering Program are as follows:
The mission of the Environmental Engineering Program is to provide its students with the highest quality technical and professional education in environmental engineering, with particular emphasis in the areas of air pollution control, water and wastewater quality, solid and hazardous waste management, and noise control.
The Environmental Engineering Program's faculty, in consultation with engineering practitioners and alumni, have developed three educational objectives to support the program mission. The educational objectives represent the goals that we have for our graduates after they leave Cal Poly. The educational objectives of the Environmental Engineering Program are as follows:
All individuals in our department will treat each other with respect and dignity. Dimensions of diversity, including race, ethnicity, national or regional origins, socioeconomic status, gender and gender identity, sexuality, class and religion, enhance and enrich intellectual discussion and creative problem-solving. By being open to new ideas and showing respect for diverse points of view, we support a climate that values all students. More information on Cal Poly’s commitment to diversity and inclusion can be found on the University Office of Diversity and Inclusion webpage.
