The Civil Engineering program focuses on the optimal design and construction processes of infrastructure and buildings required for community development, where optimal means technology-adapted processes for the analysis, design and use of innovative materials, while optimizing costs and caring for the environment.
Such technology will facilitate the creation of mathematical models that illustrate civil engineering problems within the fields of geotechnics, structures, roads, environmental sanitation, port works, construction, materials and work management.
Program Educational Objectives
UEES expects graduates of the Civil Engineering program within five years of graduation will:
- Be competent planners, designers and builders of infrastructure, with ethical values, in order to efficiently take part in the economic and social development of our country.
- Improve competitiveness in the fields of consulting or construction to identify the best options based on the experience.
- Stay up to date in the use of innovative technologies to plan, design or efficiently build constructions and infrastructure projects.
- Start administrative practices that lead to the creation of companies related to the activity of civil engineering.
- An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
- 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.
- An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
- 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.
- 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.
- An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
- An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
