Civil engineers will help to solve critical challenges on the 21st century such as rebuilding infrastructure, incorporating sustainable green building technologies into design, and providing clean, safe water to the nearly 900 million people in the world who lack access to this basic human need.
The ABET-accredited Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering (BSCE) in our College of Engineering, Technology and Architecture (CETA) will prepare you for a career in structural, geotechnical, transportation, environmental, water resources, or construction engineering.
Our Civil Engineering program promotes project-based learning. You will learn the fundamentals of science, math and engineering in your first two years with hands-on projects that use these fundamentals in real-world applications. In the next two years, you will take courses in the core areas of civil engineering, such as structural, geotechnical, transportation, environmental, water resources, and construction engineering. The curriculum will continue to emphasize project-based learning and culminates in a senior capstone design project. You will select a project in an area of interest and work as a part of a design team mentored by a practicing engineer. The experience of working as a junior engineer for a mentor has been extremely successful in helping our graduates make the transition from student to professional career.
Candidates for the BSCE may elect the environmental concentration by taking elective courses that are related to the environment to supplement a broad base of civil engineering courses.
