The Program Educational Objectives (PEOs) for Civil Engineering are the achievements that graduates in Civil Engineering shall accomplish during the first five years after graduation.

PEO # 1: Career

Graduates will demonstrate the ability to:

  1. work as professionals within engineering or related areas, and/or
  2. participate in research and development in science and technology, and/or
  3. deploy entrepreneurial actions.

PEO #2: Practice

Graduates will demonstrate the ability to apply Civil Engineering in the conception, design, planning, construction, operation, and maintenance of civil infrastructure facilities, drawing upon work ethic, collaborative work, and effective communication.

PEO #3: Continuous Learning

Graduates will demonstrate the ability to steadily expand skills and knowledge through independent study or high-level training (professional certification programs and graduate studies).

PEO #4: Leadership & Professional Engagement

Graduates will demonstrate the ability to achieve and maintain positions of influence in their organizations, from which they will demonstrate a strong social commitment starting with the assessment of the impact derived of their decisions.

As a graduate from the Bachelor of Civil Engineering you will be able to plan, design, and build basic infrastructure, applying standardized techniques and procedures to manage factors such as construction, structural engineering, water resources, geotechnics, roads, and environmental engineering to develop integral solutions that benefit society in global contexts.

Once you have finished your study program, you will have a bachelor´s degree in addition to a licenciatura degree. Therefore, your studies will be recognized worldwide.

In addition to enhancing your entry skills, at the Licenciatura in Civil Engineering we propose to:

  • Teach you to apply theoretical-practical knowledge to solve civil engineering problems.
  • Train you to be an effective communicator, a member of a team who makes decisions and shows leadership.
  • Help you understand the global impact of this profession and recognize the social responsibility of civil engineers.
  • Make you aware of the importance of continuous self-learning and commitment to your professional development.
  • Likes technology and contemporary events related to science, engineering, and technology.
  • Wants to master design strategies that promote the integral development of infrastructure.
  • Willing to work for the greater good and to be successful.
  • Determined to achieve goals through learning.
  • Able to design basic infrastructure systems and their components, using engineering, science, and math principles for specific social and environmental needs.
  • Masters analysis of experimental data from lab tests and technical reports, applying engineering and standard criteria to come up with conclusions that support decision-making.
  • Knows math, science, and engineering, and applies it to identify, formulate, and solve civil engineering problems and answer to specific needs of relevant projects.
  • Able to evaluate the impact of engineering solutions through global, economic, environmental, and social analysis to satisfy the need for efficient and effective construction.
  • Able to recommend solutions to basic infrastructure problems, by analyzing the results of standardized construction, soil, water, and structure lab tests, and reaching conclusions.
  • Skilled to identify the information technologies – tools, equipment, and software – that improve performance, identify professional links, and update knowledge.

Civil Engineering graduates will have developed the following skills:

  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 (oral & written).
  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.
