Program Educational Objectives
The civil engineering program has four concise program educational objectives (PEO) as listed below.
These PEO’s are approved by the program’s Engineering Advisory Board.
PEO 1: Graduates will demonstrate scientific and technical foundation for an immediate employment in related fields of civil engineering involving planning, analysis, design, and solution of engineering problems, and to create designs that reflect economic, environmental, and social sensitivities.
PEO 2: Graduates will have the ability to pursue graduate studies in civil engineering or related fields.
PEO 3: Graduates will obtain requisite skills to prepare complete contract documents and terms of references for Civil Engineering Project Plan, manage, monitor and evaluate the operation and maintenance of Civil Engineering works and subsequent licensure as a Professional Engineer (PE) within a few years of graduation.
PEO 4: Graduates will exhibit a commitment to lifelong learning through ongoing professional development, involvement in professional activity, and research opportunities along with a deep understanding of the social, ethical, and environmental context of a changing global work environment.
These PEOs were originally developed in 1996 when the civil engineering program started offering bachelor’s degree. Later, in 2007, following the high demand of civil engineers in the country the PEOs were reviewed and re-approved by the school of civil and water resource engineering, and the institute. Again, in academic year 2014/15 the PEOs have been reviewed by the academic council of the faculty of civil and water resource engineering. The latest version of the PEOs has reviewed by Engineering Advisory Board of the institute in July 2019. The program educational objectives are published on the institute website at http://bit.bdu.edu.et/fcwre/ and program curriculum.
