Civil engineering is the planning, design, and construction of projects that define a civilization. Civil engineers have built landmarks that now stand as tributes to the profession's creative spirit and ingenuity. Civil engineering is everywhere: the buildings in which we live and work, the roads on which we travel, the water we drink, the bridges we cross. Civil engineers design industrial and commercial buildings, bridges, towers, dams, tunnels, and mass transportation facilities. They manage urban planning and public works projects, perform air quality monitoring, and plan and design waste collection and handling systems.
The CEE curriculum has a total of 129 hours. The curriculum has been carefully designed to prepare students to succeed as Civil and Environmental Engineers. The freshman and sophomore years of the curriculum focuses on learning the fundamentals of science, math and engineering. The junior and senior years gives the student opportunities to either focus their studies in one of the areas of Civil and Environmental Engineering or take classes from a breadth of sub-disciplines.
How can I enhance my degree?
As an undergraduate student, you'll test your knowledge in real-world applications. The Capstone Design course is a required course for seniors that pairs a student team with an industry partner on a project to design an engineering or computing solution to a business problem.
With our Bachelor’s/Master’s Degrees Accelerated Program you may be eligible to complete both the bachelor's degree and master's degree in as few as five years. This program is available to undergraduate civil and environmental engineering students with GPAs of 3.50 or above and 90 or more hours earned toward their baccalaureate degrees. The use of dual credit-courses that can be used toward both degrees enables acceleration of the program, reducing the total enrollment of the student by one semester. Find if you have what it takes by exploring the admission criteria and additional requirements for the accelerated program.
