Other Delivery Aspects (Co ops, Internships, Clinical, Practica, etc.) The program does not have any formal Other Delivery Aspects though summer internships are strongly recommended and provided when economic conditions permit from our local industry partners e. Academic Unit Offering Program Department of Engineering 2. Rationale for Program a. Institutional Rationale (e.g. Alignment with Institutional Mission and Strengths) The proposed baccalaureate in Civil Engineering at Purdue University North Central(PNC) supports the direction of the Purdue System; is an integral aspect of Purdue North Central s strategic plan; contributes to human capital and economic development in northern Indiana; and meets the needs of employers in this region. This degree program builds upon PNC s successful baccalaureate degrees in mechanical engineering and electrical engineering. An important part of Purdue North Central s strategic plan, which was approved by the Purdue Board of Trustees, is to add baccalaureate and master s degrees to better serve the region. Indiana Commission for Higher Education (ICHE) policy is for regional campuses to grow to serve Indiana residents: With increasing admissions standards at the Indiana University and Purdue University flagship campuses Regional Campuses will play an increasingly important role in serving Hoosiers with high quality, low cost baccalaureate degree programs. In addition, ICHE policy is that Regional Campuses should significantly improve completion rates Adding baccalaureate degrees is essential for PNC to accomplish this. The regional campuses have become the primary access point to a Purdue education for Indiana undergraduate students as Purdue West Lafayette (PUWL) is focusing more on graduate, international, and out of state enrollment. In , the Purdue regional campuses (Indiana University Purdue University Fort Wayne, Purdue Calumet, Purdue North Central) enrolled 24,655 resident undergraduates; PUWL enrolled 19,381 resident undergraduates ( and Purdue North Central currently has 21 baccalaureate programs, including two in engineering. The B.S. in Mechanical Engineering was approved in The program had its first ABET accreditation review in October 2011, and was approved for accreditation at the annual ABET board meeting in the summer of The B.S. in Electrical Engineering was approved in The proposed baccalaureate in Civil Engineering would be the last engineering degree for PNC for the foreseeable future. The proposed program is in line with the curricula in civil engineering programs within the Purdue University system. With the rich background of Purdue engineering, the proposed program can be 1

2 implemented at the North Central Campus with little difficulty. It benefits the community and the state through expanded offerings. b. State Rationale The faculty and academic advisors visited local high schools and freshman engineering classes at PNC to obtain feedback from students about their interest in B.S. engineering programs at the North Central campus. The student survey indicates that the majority of students who have an interest in engineering prefer to study the electrical, civil and mechanical engineering disciplines. In addition, feedback from the local industrial advisory committee revealed a strong need for these disciplines to be provided locally to support the manufacturing industry and local municipalities in northern Indiana. Local municipalities also have a need for engineers for water, sewage, environmental and transportation systems and infrastructure. In addition to the regional demand for public educational engineering opportunities, the program will incorporate new initiatives associated with increased retention and scholarship. Ethics and communications will be included throughout the curriculum. Each lab will contain intensive communication elements, including both written and oral presentations. Each engineering course will also include a computational component rather than relying on only one computational course. Retention efforts will be implemented, assessed, and the results made available to other programs. The retention issues associated with a regional university that enrolls many non traditional students must be addressed in a more comprehensive manner. Traditional programs have shown deficiencies in such an environment. The goal for this program is to achieve above national averages for six year graduation rates in engineering while maintaining the rigor associated with a Purdue University engineering program. This will represent a significant advance for a regional university. The new engineering program will enhance and contribute positively to the existing engineering technology programs at PNC. Many students that are not retained in the engineering program may transfer to one of the engineering technology programs. The additional research level faculty and new lab resources will also benefit the technology programs. c. Evidence of Labor Market Need i. National, State, or Regional Needs Full and part time students would be served from the geographic region surrounding Purdue University North Central in Westville, Indiana, who desire preparation for entry into the workforce dealing with civil engineering activities. An articulation agreement exists with Ivy Tech Community College (ITCC) and PNC for the ITCC statewide pre engineering program to serve qualified students seeking transfer to PNC engineering programs. The total population for the North Central service area has increased by 4.8% from 2000 to 2007 as shown below. 2

Preparation for Graduate Programs or Other Benefits Although some graduates may go on for graduate work, this is not the primary goal. iii. Summary of Indiana DWD and/or U.S. Department of Labor Data Demand for technical personnel with knowledge and skill at the baccalaureate level continues to increase in Indiana and across the U.S. as the number of retirees and demand rises. The proposed B.S. in Civil Engineering will help meet this demand and will provide a mechanism for those seeking a Purdue degree the opportunity to continue their education within the northern Indiana region. According to the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics, civil engineers had a median salary of $77,560 per year compared to the median salary of $33,840 for all jobs. The median wage for a civil engineer in federal and local government positions is $89,450 and $80,250 respectively. The job outlook for is an increase of 19%, compared to 14% for all jobs. The estimate of the current number of civil engineers is 262,800, with an employment change of 51,100 over the next ten years. See and engineering/civil engineers.htm. In the state of Indiana, according to the Hoosier Hot 50 job list, for Economic Development Region 1, which is Northern Indiana, civil engineering type positions occupy positions 5: construction manager, 6: construction supervisor, and 11: cost estimator with salaries ranging from $55,000 to $78,000. The Hoosier Hot 50 Jobs are based on an index of eight weighted occupational measures of growth by 2018 and opportunity for Hoosier workers and were selected based on Indiana s Occupational Projections and wage data from the Occupational Employment Statistics (OES) survey, both produced by Indiana s Department of Workforce Development. Civil engineering graduates find jobs in technical and/or managerial positions in local engineering companies. Typical entry level position titles include civil engineer, environmental engineer, test engineer and transportation engineer. The demand for civil engineers in northern Indiana is good and continues to grow as new opportunities arise and senior civil engineers retire. Northern Indiana has large construction companies, architectural and engineering (A&E) companies and more in addition to municipal utilities and the Indiana Department of Transportation. (See section 2, c, vi) regarding the feedback from local engineering companies.) The statewide ranking of job priorities, as given in the Hoosier Hot 50 Jobs report, lists civil engineering jobs in several positions. In addition, civil engineering is among the top 10 degrees in demand by industry according to the United States Department of Labor. 3

National, State, or Regional Studies The Northwest Indiana Workforce Board, in conjunction with the Indiana Department of Workforce Development annually develops a set of workforce development projections for the seven counties of northwest Indiana, which include the service territory of Purdue North Central. The organization publishes a workforce investment plan annually and the most recent plan for the region identified clusters of Advanced Manufacturing and Construction, and Transportation, Distribution and Logistics as two of most in demand fields for the period Each of these clusters includes civil engineering positions. v. Surveys of Employers or Students and Analyses of Job Postings The faculty and academic advisors visited local high schools and freshman engineering classes at PNC to obtain feedback from students about their interest in B.S. engineering programs at the North Central campus. The student surveys indicate that the majority of students who have an interest in engineering prefer to study the electrical, civil and mechanical engineering disciplines. In addition, feedback from the local industrial advisory committee revealed a strong need for these disciplines to be provided locally to support the manufacturing industry and local municipalities in northern Indiana. Local municipalities also have a need for engineers for water, sewage, environmental and transportation systems and infrastructure. vi. Letters of Support 5

Faculty and Staff The budget includes.5 faculty and.4 LTL costs for the first year. The following Purdue North Central faculty and administrators will be involved with the degree program. James Dworkin, Ph.D., Chancellor Karen Schmid, Ph.D., Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs 12

13 Thomas F. Brady, Ph.D., Professor and Dean, College of Engineering and Technology Larryl K. Matthews, Ph.D., Professor of Mechanical Engineering Nuri Zeytinoglu, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering Shengyong Zhang, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering Li Tan, PhD., Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering Two faculty members are required to fully implement the complete civil engineering program with an expected growth to 2.5 FTE. The minimum credentials required for each faulty member are a Ph.D. degree along with several years of experience in the discipline. Additionally, part time faculty with appropriate expertise will be employed as required to teach selected courses. ii. Facilities The quality of library holdings and audio visual materials need to be supplemented to a modest extent through normal acquisitions and supplies budgets. The existing Construction Engineering and Management Technology laboratory spaces will be utilized in the delivery of the B.S. in Civil Engineering degree program. The labs will not be concurrent, but the spaces can be utilized by both programs. Additional laboratory space in the PNC Maintenance Building has been allocated to the College of Engineering and Technology and will be available in iii. Other Capital Costs The College of Engineering and Technology received a President s allocation of $100,000 in 2011 for the purpose of acquiring laboratory equipment for engineering programs. A majority of this allocation will be used to support Civil Engineering needs. b. Support i. Nature of Support (New, Existing, Reallocation) There is existing support to start the program. Future costs for the program will be covered through new tuition revenue. ii. Special Fees above Baseline Tuition There will be no special fees for the proposed program other than standard laboratory fees for laboratory courses required by the program. 4. Similar and Related Programs a. List of Programs and Degrees Conferred i. Similar Program at Other Institutions Two programs exist in the region: Purdue University Calumet: The School of Engineering, Mathematics and Science of Purdue University Calumet offers an accredited B.S. in Civil Engineering. Valparaiso University: The College of Engineering of Valparaiso University offer accredited B.S. degrees in civil, mechanical, electrical and computer engineering. 13

14 ii. Related Programs at the Proposing Institutions The freshman engineering program has existed at Purdue University North Central since it was first listed in the PNC catalog. In the past, students transferred to West Lafayette or other campuses after completion of a successful freshman experience at PNC due to the lack of a fouryear engineering program. Students from regional high schools as well as freshman engineering students have requested a full civil engineering program at the North Central campus which would result in substantial cost savings for these students. Additionally, a four year program would allow these students to reside close to their families and communities. The steady increase in PNC fulltime student enrollment in conjunction with campus academic autonomy has resulted in an environment conducive to offering new programs. The proposed program has been reviewed and supported by the School of Civil Engineering at the West Lafayette campus. A process of continual improvement will include input from the School of Civil Engineering at Purdue West Lafayette as well as regional businesses. It is anticipated that the freshmen class of civil engineering will begin in the fall of The B.S. in Mechanical Engineering degree was approved in the fall of It entered its junior year in the fall of 2009 with more than 30 students enrolled. The first graduates completed their degrees in May They have done extremely well in the job market. The existing resources developed along with the mechanical engineering program and the clear student interest in the civil engineering program makes the need and success for a new civil engineering program clear. The program will attract bright young students from local high schools and create new research opportunities for mathematics, science and engineering faculty members. Class sizes will increase in the physical sciences and mathematics. Interactions between engineering faculty and faculty in other colleges will foster greater research collaboration without increasing load factors appreciably. iii. List of Similar Programs Outside Indiana Similar Civil Engineering programs outside of Indiana that may used as a benchmark include Illinois Institute of Technology, University of Illinois Chicago and Western Michigan University. iv. Articulation of Associate/Baccalaureate Programs Students should not have problems in transferring credits earned in the B.S. in Civil Engineering to other similar programs at other institutions in Indiana or across the nation. An articulation agreement already exists between Ivy Tech Community College and PNC. v. Collaboration with Similar or Related Programs on Other Campuses The PNC program in Civil Engineering will work with similar programs on other campuses in the area in formal and informal fashion as we have been doing with our current engineering programs since their inception. We have an articulation agreement state wide with Ivy Tech and their preengineering program to ensure seamless student transfer. We have worked with Valparaiso University faculty to allow their engineering students to take our senior design course. We have worked with students and faculty from Purdue University Calumet to facilitate optimal scheduling and transfer of courses. Since we do not currently offer engineering courses during the summer sessions, we work with our students to find courses they may need or desire to take during summer sessions at other campuses. Additionally, we encourage our faculty members to develop relationships with their peers at neighboring campuses. 14

Exceeding the Standard Expectation of Credit Hours: The curriculum requires 128 credit hours and has been carefully designed to meet the outcomes and expectations required for Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) accreditation in the minimum number of credits. 17

18 c. Program Competencies or Learning Outcomes The PNC civil engineering program is designed to prepare students in technical engineering competence and professional skills. Graduates are best suited for technical and/or managerial positions in industry and/or government. Professionals in this field work in the areas of infrastructure design and analysis, building construction design and management, engineering consulting, safety and environmental systems and more. The primary objectives of the civil engineering program are: Provide a well rounded quality undergraduate engineering education Teach applications of modern sciences and technologies Provide engineering consulting services to local industry Encourage student involvement in undergraduate research activities Encourage student involvement in undergraduate engineering competitions Encourage student participation in local engineering societies Prepare students for professional licensure d. Assessment It is anticipated that the program will be implemented in the fall of There will be an increase in engineering enrollment over the next few years, resulting in a substantial increase in the number of credit hours. The freshman engineering program will be expanded to sophomore level during the fall 2014 semester, leading to the first cohort of civil engineering graduates by May The following criteria and methods will be utilized for the program assessment and evaluation of the engineering program: The quality and performance of the students and graduates are important considerations in the evaluation of the engineering program. Data will be kept on quality of the incoming students and the placement of engineering graduates, which includes statistics on retention, placement, career advancement of students and employer satisfaction. The assessment process will be designed to evaluate the program outcomes important to the mission of the institution and the program educational objectives. Working with ABET and the industrial advisory board, the content of the program will be continuously evaluated and updated to maintain the appropriate scholarly activity. ABET criteria require such measures be taken. The professional component requirements specify subject areas appropriate to the field of engineering and the engineering faculty will ensure the development of the program in a timely manner consistent with the objectives of the institution. The faculty have the adequate expertise to cover all of the curricular area of the program, including student advising and counseling, university service activities, professional development and interactions with local industry. 18

19 Program quality will be evaluated by the Dean of Engineering and Technology in cooperation with the faculty members, the industrial advisory board and the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET. Additional assessment and evaluation criteria include a graduate s ability to: apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering design and conduct experiments as well as analyze and interpret data design a system, component or process to meet the desired specifications function on multi disciplinary teams identify, formulate and solve engineering problems understand professional and ethical responsibilities communicate effectively obtain a broad education required to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global and societal context recognize the need for and an ability to engage in lifelong learning understand contemporary issues and contribute to societal needs use the techniques, skills and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice e. Licensure and Certification Presuming this Civil Engineering program achieves ABET accreditation, graduates from the program will be eligible to pursue licensure as a Professional Engineer, or P.E. Feedback from our external advisory board has been unanimous in the support of the P.E. process and the importance of our program fully preparing students to pursue the P.E. The P.E. process typically involves four steps: 1. Students must graduate from an ABET accredited program. 2. Students must pass the Fundamentals of Engineering ( F.E. ) written examination during their last semester of study. (Purdue typically has an F.E. pass rate in excess of 90%). 3. Graduates must accumulate professional experience, typically about four years. 4. Graduates must pass the Principles and Practice in Engineering ( P.E. ) written examination in a chosen engineering discipline f. Placement of Graduates The Office of Career Development at Purdue University North Central provides career and job search services to Purdue students and alumni. This office provides a full range of career development services to provide assistance in the development of job search skills and to facilitate 19

20 connections between employers and students. The College of Engineering and Technology and PNC s Office of Career Development have partnered to develop numerous events and services specific to engineering recruiting. This partnership has resulted in 95% placement of our Mechanical Engineering graduates to date and we anticipate similar success with Civil Engineering graduates. g. Accreditation We will formally request ABET accreditation as soon as we graduate a BSCE student, per ABET guidelines. We already have in place a comprehensive continuous improvement and assessment program for our engineering and technology degree programs that meets and exceeds ABET criteria. This process was integral for our Mechanical Engineering program receiving a full six year accreditation in Projected Headcount and FTE Enrollment and Degrees Conferred Table 2 Data for Question # 6 Projected Headcount and FTE Enrollment and Degrees Conferred Year #1 Year # 2 Year # 3 Year # 4 Year # 5 FY 2014 FY2015 FY 2016 FY 2017 FY 2018 Enrollment Projections (Headcount) Enrollment Projections (FTE) Degree Completions Projection
