Get familiar with all aspects of engineering design and analysis.

Civil engineers design, build, and supervise the construction of large, important projects in the public and private sectors, including roads, buildings, airports, tunnels, bridges, water and sewage systems, and other infrastructures. In the design and planning process, they apply their decision-making and problem-solving skills to analyze and evaluate many factors: topography and soils, building materials, government regulations, potential environmental hazards, construction costs, and more.

The Educational Objectives of the Civil Engineering program are:

  • To produce graduates who demonstrate professional competence in civil engineering practice in local and global environments serving public and private interests, including public works.
  • To produce graduates who exhibit effective communication, team work, and leadership ability while acting ethically and professionally.
  • To produce graduates who maintain awareness of societal and contemporary issues and fulfill community and society’s needs.
  • To produce graduates who actively engage in life-long learning, by completing professional development/training courses and workshops, acquiring engineering licensure, and/or pursuing and completing an advanced degree.

Program Outcomes

Graduates will demonstrate:

  • an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering.
  • an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data.
  • an ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability.
  • an ability to function on multidisciplinary teams.
  • an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems.
  • an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility.
  • an ability to communicate effectively.
  • the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context.
  • a recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in lifelong learning.
  • a knowledge of contemporary issues.
  • an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
  • an ability to apply knowledge of multiple sub-disciplines of civil engineering.
