Mission and Objectives

Civil and Chemical Engineering 

It is the mission of UTC’s civil and chemical engineering programs are to provide students with

  • the knowledge and skills required for a wide range of careers and graduate study
  • to provide service to the profession in our region and beyond
  • to maintain a supportive environment that encourages our students and faculty to achieve

Program Objectives:
UTC’s civil and chemical engineering program produces graduates who, upon entering the work force or advanced studies:

  1. Have the ability to function as civil or chemical engineers
  2. Agree that UTC was conductive to their achieving
  3. Work effectively in multidisciplinary teams
  4. Are progressing toward professional registration
  5. Participate in professional societies
  6. Pursue graduate studies

Program Outcomes:
Prior to graduation, each graduate of UTC’s civil and chemical engineering program will demonstrate:

  1. A knowledge of science, mathematics, physics, chemistry and engineering principles that are fundamental to the design and management of infrastructure.
  2. An ability to understand contemporary, societal, and global issues as it impacts the design and management of infrastructures.
  3. An ability to use engineering principles and modern engineering tools to identify, analyze, and solve technical problems in civil and chemical engineering including the appropriate use of computer technology
  4. An ability to function effectively in interdisciplinary teams and to communicate effectively through speaking and writing.
  5. An understanding of professional and ethical responsibilities and a need for a commitment to life-long learning and participation in professional societies
  6. An ability to plan, conduct, analyze, and interpret and synthesize experimental results
  7. An ability to design major components or process in four of the major technical specialty areas of civil and chemical engineering.

General Engineering - (B.S.E.) Degree

The mission of the program for the Bachelor of Science Degree in Engineering (B.S.E.) Degree is to provide accessible education in the theory and application of engineering in a supportive, interdisciplinary environment that

  • Prepares students for successful careers in industry, government, and academia
  • Emphasizes project-based design
  • Promotes life-long learning
  • Serves the engineering profession

Program Outcomes: Upon graduation from UTC, BSE students will have demonstrated

  • An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering
  • An ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data
  • An ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability
  • An ability to function on multi-disciplinary teams
  • An ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems
  • An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility
  • An ability to communicate effectively
  • The broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context
  • A recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning
  • A knowledge of contemporary issues
