Civil engineering is the oldest and broadest of the engineering disciplines. A civil engineer works with a wide spectrum of individuals in both the public and private sectors to meet today's challenges of pollution, infrastructure rehabilitation, traffic congestion, floods, earthquakes, and urban development.

Degrees Offered

The CE undergraduate program leading to a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering consists of a total of 130 credit hours. The program typically spans over a period of four years for full-time students.  The program in civil engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET.

Students pursuing a master's degree can earn a Master of Engineering in Civil Engineering, a Master of Science in Civil Engineering, or a Master of Construction Management.


The Department of Civil Engineering enjoys strong support from local industry and alumni, and that support is demonstrated through the number of scholarships we are able to offer undergraduate students.   All scholarships are awarded on a competitive basis.  The amount, deadline, duration, and award criteria vary among the types of awards available to the students.  Students are strongly encouraged to carefully review the application criteria and comply with all relevant policies and procedures when applying for these scholarships.
