ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT

Civil engineers plan and design large-scale projects like bridges and power plants, study and solve societal and environmental challenges like providing safe drinking water, and design and maintain transportation systems.

Our undergraduate program allows students to tailor their education toward specialties like structural, water resources and hydraulic, geotechnical, environmental and transportation.

The graduate program is designed to be flexible enough to meet the needs of students with varied backgrounds and prepare them for a career in industry, government or academia.
