Civil Engineering Assessment Results

The Department of Civil Engineering and Construction utilizes a number of instruments to measure attainment of the Civil Engineering Program student outcomes. These instruments include course outcome mapping, senior exit interviews, assessment data (from our constituents and stakeholders including students, advisory board members, alumni, and employers), and interviews with capstone senior design teams. For student outcome assessment based on course outcome mapping, the department has adopted a standard of 80% as the expected level of attainment for each student outcome.

Provided in the table below is a summary of the results of the assessment for each outcome by each of its constituencies and also an overall average for all outcomes. The rating system is 1 to 5 with 5 being the highest rating possible.
