Bachelor's in Civil Engineering

Program Summary

The Civil Engineering degree represents the first step towards professional certification and advanced academic study. Civil engineers work in fast-paced, challenging and rewarding professions around the world.


Program Description

Civil engineering evolved as a formal discipline at the start of the 19th century as a response to society's needs for increased mobility and convenience. Today's civil engineers deal primarily with public and private infrastructure and its relation to the environment, which includes planning, design, construction, and maintenance of transportation systems, bridges, dams, buildings, water supply/distribution/treatment systems, wastewater and storm water collection/treatment/disposal systems, irrigation systems, and flood control. Civil engineers also operate public and private works, and design environmental protection for water, air, and land. The civil engineering program seeks to prepare graduates, who after the first few years of their professional career have:

  • Advanced their knowledge base.

  • Developed leadership skills necessary to assume progressively more responsible roles in their profession.

  • Exhibited effective communication skills necessary to interact in a diverse professional environment, Employed modern engineering and computational tools.


The curriculum builds a sound foundation in basic sciences and mathematics, followed by courses in engineering science and design that provide a solid base for lifelong professional learning. Engineering courses and laboratories provide an opportunity for students to experience those principles and standard practices that they will encounter in their careers. The curriculum is oriented to develop a student's ability to think logically and to apply the knowledge gained to the design and synthesis of complex civil engineering projects. The program provides an integration of design experience from the freshman year to the senior year, culminating in a Capstone Design project. The projects challenge students to apply the knowledge and skills they learned throughout their degree to real world problems. The best projects are proposed by industry clients and require solutions that can be implemented immediately. The students work in small teams under the close supervision of a faculty advisor and, when possible, mentored by a practicing Professional Engineer from industry. Students are required to build a model of their designs. Engineering design, team problem solving, and communication skills are emphasized throughout the curriculum. Students pursue areas of interest by selecting appropriate technical electives in the areas of construction engineering and management, engineering materials, environmental engineering, geotechnical engineering, structural engineering, transportation engineering, and water resources engineering.
