Department Mission Statement

Villanova University’s Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering provides students with a high quality, contemporary, broad-based, personalized civil engineering education within the Augustinian, humanistic context. We prepare our students for professional practice, graduate study, and life-long learning.

Program Educational Objectives: Civil Engineering

Three to five years after graduation, we expect our graduates to be able to:

  1. Use their broad-based civil engineering backgrounds to perform as engineers in construction, environmental, geotechnical, structural, transportation, water resources, or general civil engineering.
  2. Succeed in graduate school in the disciplines listed above or closely related disciplines, as well as other areas such as business and law.
  3. Continue the process of life-long learning as required for long-term personal and professional growth.
  4. Use technical and interpersonal skills to help themselves and their employers succeed.
  5. Serve society by being ethical members of their professional community.
  6. Relate their personal and professional lives to the Augustinian, humanistic tradition.

Student Outcomes: Civil Engineering

Graduates with a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from Villanova University will be able to demonstrate:

  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
