Department of Civil, Environmental, and Biomedical Engineering

students working on circuit in lab

Civil, Environment, and Biomedical Engineering at the University of Hartford prepares you for rewarding careers that impact local communities and people’s lives. Our programs offer a solid mix of engineering, math and sciences, as well as humanities to give you a well-rounded educational experience.

In Civil and Environmental Engineering, you learn about the latest technologies and advancements for planning, designing, and constructing the built environment while protecting and restoring the natural environment. Through challenging real-world projects, you work cooperatively with industry professionals to gain a broad civil engineering background in the areas of structural, transportation, geotechnical, water resources, and environmental engineering. Our civil engineering graduates work for nationally recognized companies and local, state, and federal government agencies responsible for building and maintaining the foundation of our modern society and protecting the public.

In Biomedical Engineering, you focus on how the human body works, and the methods and procedures used to monitor and improve the health of individuals. You will learn to “speak the language” of both the engineer and the health professional and engage in real-world projects interfacing with local, regional and global based companies, agencies, health care providers and researchers. Our biomedical engineering graduates work with companies, universities, government agencies, and hospitals to maintain and develop health-related equipment, along with developing strategies by which to better understand the basis of health-related issues, and assist in the development of next-generation advances in the health professions.

Carolyn Marchak

Civil Engineering & Architectural Design + Technology, 2024

Cari Marchak ’24, a civil engineering and architectural design + technology double major, knew from an early age she wanted to explore a career that would impact her environment and the world around her. Marchak emphasizes how well her civil engineering classes complement what she is learning in architecture. In particular, she discovers this even more as she learns how to study the topographical features around her and how various materials react to certain forces. “This allows me to be able to program, draw and construct three-dimensional models in my transportation, structural analysis, or surveying projects that I am working on,” Marchak says.

UHart gives you more flexibility and options compared to many other schools. I am grateful for the opportunity to pursue degrees in two relative fields through this unique dual program and make the most of my college experience here.
