Mission

The mission of the undergraduate degree programs in civil engineering and construction engineering is to educate students in the Jesuit tradition of ethics-based education who continually seek professional, spiritual, and moral excellence; who exhibit leadership in their professional, religious, cultural, and civic communities; who will include service to others in their lives; and who will contribute sustainable and economic solutions to global challenges in the fields of civil and construction engineering.

Objectives

Civil Engineering Degree Program

Marquette University Civil, Construction and Environmental Engineering graduates completing the Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering will:

  • Successfully enter the civil engineering profession as practicing engineers in diverse civil engineering related areas that include structural engineering and structural mechanics, transportation engineering and materials, environmental engineering, construction engineering; or other related and/or emerging fields.
  • Engage in life-long learning through: pursuit of graduate education and research in structural engineering and structural mechanics, construction engineering, transportation engineering and materials, environmental engineering; and/or professional development.
  • Pursue professional licensure and certification.
  • Serve and become leaders in their professional and civic communities.

Construction Engineering Degree Program

To carry out the mission of the College of Engineering and the mission of the department described previously, the Department of Civil, Construction and Environmental Engineering has established the following Educational Objectives for its graduates completing the Bachelor of Science degree in Construction Engineering:

  • Develop an appreciation for religious, moral, ethical and human values.
  • Provide a foundation for the application of the fundamentals of science and mathematics to engineering analysis and design.
  • Provide a foundation for understanding the application of construction engineering by giving students an opportunity to experience the construction engineering profession through the co-operative engineering program, service learning, summer internships and/or hands-on experience in laboratory courses.
  • Prepare graduates to communicate effectively in written, graphical and oral form.
  • Prepare students to be leaders by providing opportunities to exhibit leadership and develop team-building skills.
  • Instill a commitment to lifelong learning.
