Undergraduate Programming in Civil Engineering

Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering

Our curriculum provides a broad-based education in construction engineering and management, environmental engineering, geotechnical and materials engineering, structural engineering, transportation engineering, and water resources engineering. We accomplish this through a base of physics, mathematics, project management, design, and specific civil engineering focused courses along with hands-on project-based learning and real-world experiences.

We have a number of professional society student chapters to allow for the exploration of civil engineering outside the classroom. Students have access to speakers, career fairs, plant tours, conferences, competitions, professional contacts, leadership opportunities, and social events. Learn more »

What is a civil engineer?

Civil engineers (CEs) are trained to solve the design, construction, and maintenance concerns of the natural and physically built environment. They deal with public works including highways, railroads, bridges, buildings, and water and energy systems. CEs seek to tackle some of the major problems facing engineering today and lead the industry in research discoveries and design innovations. They work in a variety of fields to develop solutions for challenges in design, construction, research, and education. 

Examples of career opportunities: Municipal/state/federal government; consulting engineering; private industry; construction industry; non-governmental organizations; academia
