    Program Criteria for Civil and Similarly Names Programs

    Applicability Clause

    2

    These program criteria apply to engineering programs that include “civil,” “infrastructure,” or similar modifiers in their titles.

     

    Civil Engineering Program Criteria

    3

    The curriculum must include topics necessary to…

    4

    … apply knowledge of mathematics through differential equations, calculus-based physics, chemistry, and at least one additional area of natural science;

    5

    …apply probability and statistics to address uncertainty and risk relevant to civil engineering;

    6

    …apply engineering mechanics, materials science, and numerical methods to solve civil engineering problems;

    7

    …apply principles of sustainability … in the formulation and solution of civil engineering problems;

    8

    …apply principles of … leadership, diversity, equity, and inclusion in the formulation and solution of civil engineering problems;

    9

    …explain concepts and principles in project management and engineering economics;

    10

    …solve complex problems in at least four specialty areas appropriate to civil engineering;

    11

    …conduct experiments in at least two civil engineering contexts and report the results;

    12

    …apply the engineering design process to develop a system, component, or process in at least two civil engineering contexts;

    13

    …apply the ASCE Code of Ethics to an ethical dilemma;

    14

    …explain the professional attitudes and responsibilities of a civil engineer, including licensure and safety.

    Faculty

    15

    The program must demonstrate that faculty teaching courses that are primarily design in content are qualified to teach the subject matter by virtue of professional licensure, or by education and design experience.

    16

    The program must demonstrate that it is not critically dependent on one individual.
