In support of the mission of the Department and our educational objectives, the faculty have prepared a set of undergraduate program outcomes we expect our graduates to achieve. Students graduating from the Department will have: 1) ability to apply knowledge of basic mathematics, science, and engineering to solving civil engineering problems; 2) ability to design a civil engineering system to meet desired needs while incorporating engineering standards and realistic constraints such as those based on economic, environmental, ethical, health and safety, social, and political issues; 3) understanding of the impact of civil engineering solutions in a global/political/societal context; 4) ability to use modern tools, techniques, and computation methods necessary for civil engineering practice; and 5) ability to apply probability, statistics, and economics in civil engineering decisions.
The graduate program is nationally recognized as one of the leading programs in the country. With more than 8 research groups and laboratories, and unique collaborations with peer institutions, the Department equips graduate students with practical skills and research capabilities. Whether considering a career as a practicing engineer or a lifetime in research and academia, the Department can help you step up to a higher level. The Department is currently conducting the BK21 Project that is managed by the Ministry of Education(MOE), Republic of Korea, to nurture the creative leaders of high technology in this world of knowledge-based society of the 21C. With this project, the curriculum will be rearranged to underline the growth of creativity of graduate students. Graduate school students will get constant assistance in a financial way and the quality of education will be uplifted with great ability.
