Undergraduate Programs

The Department of Civil Engineering offers a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering.

Requirements for a Degree

The Civil Engineering curriculum builds upon a strong base of mathematics, physical sciences, engineering sciences, and humanities developed primarily during the Freshman and Sophomore years. During the Junior year, students develop an understanding of the fundamentals of each area of Civil Engineering specialty area:

  • Environmental Engineering
  • Geotechnical Engineering
  • Structural Engineering
  • Transportation Engineering
  • Water Resources and Coastal Engineering

The senior year focuses on the integration of more advanced knowledge in civil engineering and design. Student teams complete a comprehensive design project incorporating expertise from several CE specialty areas as part of our Senior Capstone Design Course. Satisfactory completion of the 134-hour program leads to a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering.

Students must also comply with the College of Engineering Requirements for a Degree (see Bulletin copy) which requires students to take and make a good-faith effort to pass the FE exam prior to graduation.
