CME Undergraduate Program

Information and Objectives

B.S. in Civil Engineering

Civil engineering is a broadly based discipline that encompasses many specialties. The civil engineering curriculum provides students with a strong background in engineering and applied sciences. The B.S. Program in Civil Engineering at UIC is accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET). The program educational objectives and student outcomes for the B.S. in Civil Engineering at UIC were approved by the Departmental faculty, Civil Engineering Professional Advisory Council (CEPAC), and student representatives of the Department, and they are stated in the following paragraphs. The Program's Educational Objectives pertain to the expected accomplishments of our graduates during the first few years after graduation. The Student Outcomes describes the expected knowledge and technical capabilities of our students by the time of graduation.

Civil Engineering Program Educational Objectives

Graduates of the Civil Engineering program at the University of Illinois at Chicago will establish careers in engineering, research and development, and/or management professions and be involved in professional societies. Graduates of the program are expected within a few years of graduation:

  • To apply technical expertise, effective design skills, and sustainability principles to address evolving engineering challenges affecting a diverse society

  • To be engaged in continuing education. Motivated graduates will have pursued or have well-formulated plans to pursue graduate education

  • To effectively and ethically contribute as a member, manager, or leader of multi-disciplinary teams through efficient communication of technical and non-technical issues

A majority of those in the engineering profession will be licensed Professional Engineers within five years of graduation, and a majority of those practicing structural engineering will become licensed Structural Engineers within ten years.

Civil Engineering Student Outcomes

Graduates of the Civil Engineering Program will be able to:

  • Select and apply appropriate techniques, skills and modern engineering tools for efficient solution of Civil engineering problems
  • Select and apply a knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering and technology to solve problems
  • Design and conduct experiments, collect and analyze data, and interpret results to improve a process
  • Design systems, components, or processes for broadly-defined engineering technology problems appropriate to program educational objectives
  • Function effectively as a member or leader on a technical team
  • Identify, analyze, and solve broadly-defined engineering technology problems
  • Apply written, oral and graphical communication in both technical and non-technical environments; and identify and use appropriate technical literature
  • Recognize the importance and need to engage in self-directed life-long learning and civic and professional participation
  • Commit to their ethical and professional responsibilities with respect for diversity
  • Understand the societal and global impacts of engineering technology solutions
  • Produce quality work in a timely manner and commit to continuous improvement
  • A majority of the graduates should pass the Fundamentals of Engineering Exam

Degree Requirements

To earn a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering degree from UIC, students need to complete university, college, and department degree requirements. The Department of Civil and Materials Engineering degree requirements are outlined below. Students should consult the College of Engineering section for additional degree requirements and college academic policies.

All students must take the Fundamentals of Engineering Examination (FE Exam) before graduation.
