The College of Engineering at UAA has an accredited Bachelors of Civil Engineering Degree program. I will complete this degree in the Fall on 2017 where I will have gained the fundamental knowledge for an engineering career in the United States and will be able to apply what I have learned to a career in any science and engineering field that I so choose.
I was introduced to the basic principles of mathematics, chemistry, and physics during the first two years of my degree. These classes provided me with the building blocks needed to complete the core engineering classes. Starting in the third year of the degree program I started to take the classes focused in the engineering sciences. Here I was introduced to the process of engineering analysis and design. In the past year, I have utilized all the knowledge from my years of engineering internships and degree specific classes to take more specialized courses and complete a project that would test everything I had learned up until now.
After graduating with my B.S. degree in Civil Engineering from UAA, I will have fulfilled the following outcomes:
- An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics through differential equations, probability and statistics, calculus-based physics, and general chemistry
- An ability to apply knowledge in a minimum of four recognized major civil engineering areas
- An ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data, in more than one of the recognized major civil engineering areas
- An ability to design a civil engineering system, component, or process to meet desired needs
- An ability to function on multidisciplinary 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 and societal context
- A recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in, lifelong learning
- A knowledge of contemporary issues in professional practice
- An ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice
