Without civil engineers, society would still be back in the dark ages. Whether it is roads, bridges, skyscrapers, dams, water supply systems, pollution control, airports, railroads, or a hundred other key elements or our modern infrastructure, civil engineers play the key role in developing and maintaining these systems. The complexity of these systems requires innovative engineers who are capable of applying the best and newest technology to the ever increasing needs of a modern society.
The undergraduate program in civil engineering is the first step in preparing the students to enter the oldest, and arguably the most vital field of engineering. The program provided by the department will prepare the students to enter directly into the profession.
The programs offer a broad-based engineering curriculum with opportunities to focus in one or more of several subfields.
