The four-year curriculum leading to the Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering prepares our graduates to enter professional practice as an engineer or to continue their studies and earn a master's or doctoral degree. The degree program is designed to offer depth in the course material considered essential for all civil engineers along with the flexibility to select elective courses that meet students' interests and expose them to the breadth of civil engineering specialties.

We contribute to society in numerous ways, so civil engineers must master the technical aspects of our work while also learning to effectively work with a wide range of people and with professionals in many different fields. Our graduates work in planning and design, construction, research and development, operations, and maintenance. They also pursue careers in law, medicine, banking, real estate and more.
