Civil Engineering

Department Chair: M. Saleh Keshawarz

The Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering (B.S.C.E.) degree will prepare students for careers in various areas, such as a structural engineer, transportation, or environmental engineer. Civil Engineering students will learn about design, construction and maintenance of buildings, bridges, highways and airports. In their work, Civil Engineers use everything from the simplest calculator and measuring tapes to the latest satellite technology and Geographic Information System (GIS).


The Program in Civil Engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET,

The Civil and Environmental Engineering Department administers the undergraduate degree programs in Civil Engineering and Interdisciplinary Engineering with Environmental and Biomedical emphasis. Candidates for the B.S.C.E. may elect the Environmental concentration. Candidates for the B.S.E. in Interdisciplinary Engineering may select the Biomedical Engineering program or Environmental Engineering as a specialization. School of Engineering courses that are designated as Environmental Engineering courses are labeled in the course descriptions with the designation (ENV) following the number of credits.
