Undergraduate Civil Engineering Degree Program

What is Civil Engineering About?

Civil engineers design the constructed environment that supports our society. From highways and buildings to bridges, water resource systems and the environment, the profession of civil engineering is responsible for much of the world in which we live. The variety of challenges facing modern society means that civil engineers can look forward to a highly rewarding, dynamic career.

The program of study leading to a bachelor of science degree in civil engineering reflects the breadth of the profession. Students complete course work in basic science and mathematics, engineering sciences, civil engineering systems and materials, and in five major civil engineering disciplines (i.e. structures, foundations, water resources, environmental and transportation). Because of the tremendous impact civil engineers have on society, the curriculum also requires students to pursue studies in the social sciences and the humanities.
