Summary

Our nation’s success has been built on the foundation of our solid infrastructure. Today, thousands of public works projects in the United States are in desperate need of repair and many more new infrastructure developments are necessary to keep our country competitive in the global community. There has never been a greater need for talented civil and environmental engineers to plan, execute, and lead these important projects.

The College of Engineering’s Civil Engineering major educates students to become leaders in this important and in-demand profession. The Civil Engineering major provides students with a broad and well-integrated background in the concepts, theories, and methodologies needed to plan, design, analyze, develop, organize, and manage civil and environmental engineering projects. Students work with state-of-the-art equipment in our new concrete/structures, transportation, environmental/water resources, and soil mechanics laboratories.

The Civil Engineering major focuses on the latest advances in the design, construction, and maintenance of society’s infrastructure – roads, railroads, buildings, airports, seaports, tunnels, dams, bridges, pipelines, water treatment and supply networks, and environmental systems. Students study major areas of civil engineering: structural engineering, transportation engineering, geotechnical engineering, environmental engineering, water resources engineering, and construction engineering. Students also study alternative/renewable energy, sustainable materials, and green building laws.

Civil Engineering students select one of four concentrations starting their junior year. They can select the Civil Engineering concentration, the Environmental Engineering concentration, the Reservoir Engineering concentration, or the Railway Engineering concentration. The first two years of the curriculum are the same for all Civil Engineering students. The selection of courses for the last two years is moderately different depending on the concentration.

Career Opportunities

The Civil Engineering concentration provides a solid foundation in major sub-disciplines of civil engineering that leads to employment in both private and public sectors of industry or military. Examples of career opportunities include city/county/state organizations, federal agencies, and small to large private engineering firms.

The Environmental Engineering concentration provides a solid foundation in major sub-disciplines of civil engineering with an emphasis on environmental and water resources engineering. This concentration leads to employment in both private and public sectors of industry or military. Examples of career opportunities include state and federal agencies, water or wastewater treatment plants, environmental laboratories, and small to large private engineering firms

The Reservoir Engineering concentration provides a solid foundation in major sub-disciplines of civil engineering with an emphasis on reservoir engineering. This concentration leads to employments in both private and public sectors of industry. Examples of career opportunities include state and federal agencies, private petroleum companies, and small to large private engineering firms.

The Railway Engineering concentration provides a solid foundation in major sub-disciplines of civil engineering with an emphases on railway engineering. This concentration leads to employment in both private and public sectors of industry. Examples of career opportunities include state and federal agencies, and small to large private engineering firms.
