Our bachelor’s degree program in civil engineering has been accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org. With ABET accreditation, students, parents, employers and the society we serve can be confident that our programs meet the quality standards that produce graduates prepared to enter a global workforce.

Engineering Accreditation Commission

Mission Statement

The mission of the Zachry Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Texas A&M University is to prepare our graduates to become professional engineers and leaders in the engineering profession by providing our students with a solid education that will enable them to integrate fundamental scientific engineering principles and that will couple with the latest technological advances to facilitate the development of their problem-solving skills. Additionally, the department provides opportunities for educational enhancement through meaningful interactions with the profession.

In summary, we expect our graduates to be fully prepared for life-long learning experiences that will strengthen their abilities to successfully and effectively solve the complex engineering problems facing society.

Civil Engineering Program Educational Objectives

The undergraduate civil engineering program within the department will produce graduates:

  • who are prepared to enter civil engineering practice and/or continue their education through study in graduate and professional programs;
  • most of whom will become practicing civil engineers with most of these becoming licensed professional engineers; and
  • many of whom will pursue advanced studies.

Civil Engineering Undergraduate Program Student Outcomes

The student outcomes that prepare graduates to attain the program educational objectives are:

  1. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
  2. an ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors 
  3. an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
  4. an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts 
  5. an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives
  6. an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
  7. an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies
  8. an ability to use modern tools, techniques, and computation methods necessary for civil engineering practice.
