Undergraduate Students

Civil engineering is concerned with a wide variety of elements in natural and manmade environments. The civil engineer conceives, designs, constructs, manages and maintains physical facilities and infrastructures, including residential and industrial buildings, bridges, transportation systems, tunnels, dams, power plants, space structures, water resources, water treatment systems, municipal and industrial waste disposal (including hazardous waste treatment systems), and air and water pollution control systems.

Undergraduate students in the department may elect to take a series of courses concentrated in structural engineering, geotechnical engineering, transportation engineering, hydraulic engineering, environmental engineering or general civil engineering.
