This page serves as documentation of the educational objectives, outcomes and student data related to the environmental engineering program at UW-River Falls for accreditation purposes. UWRF is engaged in the process of obtaining ABET accreditation of the Environmental Engineering program.

Program Educational Objectives

Three to five years after graduation, graduates of the environmental engineering program will be independently applying their knowledge, skills and abilities to identify, analyze and provide solutions to environmental and related engineering problems. Graduates will be effectively communicating with colleagues, peers, clients and other stakeholders. They will be effective leaders and team collaborators. Graduates of the program will maintain the integrity of the engineering profession, engage in lifelong learning, and recognize the value of engaging in a global society through self-study, continuing education, or graduate school.

Student Outcomes

Outcomes expected of students in the environmental engineering program include the following abilities to:

  1. Identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
  2. Apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors
  3. Communicate effectively with a range of audiences
  4. Recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts
  5. Function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives
  6. Develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
  7. Acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
