To accomplish the Program Educational Objectives and to satisfy the ABET specific requirements for the environmental engineering degree, the program has set forth the following Student Outcomes, along with an assessment process to provide feedback for continuous improvement in the program. Graduates of the Environmental Engineering program must attain: (a) an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering (b) an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data (particularly in the areas of water quality and environmental health). (c) 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 (d) an ability to function on multidisciplinary teams (e) an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems (f) an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility (g) an ability to communicate effectively (h) the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context (i) a recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning (j) a knowledge of contemporary issues (k) an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice. The environmental engineering curriculum is designed to provide environmental engineering graduates with a comprehensive engineering education. Students must demonstrate that they have attained an introductory level knowledge of environmental issues associated with air, land, and water systems and associated environmental health impacts; an understanding of concepts of professional practice and the roles and responsibilities of public institutions and private organizations pertaining to environmental engineering, and a proficiency in advanced principles and practice relevant to water quality and environmental health.
