The objectives of the Civil Engineering ABET-accredited undergraduate degree program are to prepare graduates who can perform at the entry level in civil engineering practice so that, some years after graduation, they can become licensed professionals having responsibility for the planning, design, implementation, operation and continuous improvement of civil engineering structures and infrastructure. They will be provided with skills and tools for life-long learning, continuing professional development, and to pursue advanced degrees.
The Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET accredits our Civil Engineering curriculum, modeled on the recommendations of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE).
FTE Student Enrollment
As a student in our program, your first two years’ courses that satisfy the university’s general education curriculum requirements plus introductory classes on basic construction topics. The curriculum in your last two years focuses on construction engineering and management topics as well as on construction sciences courses.
FTE Student Enrollment
Students with backgrounds in civil engineering as well as related disciplines are invited to apply. Students with science backgrounds desiring admission to the graduate program will be required to complete course work, prerequisite or otherwise, that will assure successful completion of the graduate program. Specific course work requirements will depend on the area of specialization desired by the applicant. Applicants must identify a specialization from one of the following areas: environmental, fluids/ hydraulics, geotechnical, structural, systems, or transportation.
The Master of Science in Construction Management (M.S.C.M.) degree provides graduate-level study for those seeking mid- and upper-level management positions in the construction industry or continued study for the doctorate. Students with degrees in construction management, engineering, science, architecture and business, as well as related disciplines are invited to apply. Applications for admission to the program are evaluated on an individual basis by the program’s faculty.
The Master of Science in Transportation degree program is terminal in nature and oriented toward the practice of transportation science, with emphasis on the planning and operations aspects of transportation systems. It is intended for applicants who have backgrounds in areas other than engineering or closely related disciplines, and who either presently work for or aspire to work for transportation agencies or firms.
