Our undergraduate curriculum provides students with a broad-based civil engineering education. Each student can focus on:

  • Structural Engineering & Mechanics
  • Transportation Engineering
  • Geotechnical  Engineering
  • Environmental Engineering
  • Water Resources Engineering

The degree culminates with a two-semester capstone design sequence requiring students to work on multi-disciplinary teams and apply their civil engineering knowledge to real-world problems.  There is a Senior Capstone Gala where students present their work, get a chance to interact with engineering professionals, and the evening finishes with formal dining. Our research-active faculty typically supports numerous graduate students conducting research in several sub-disciplines of civil engineering.
