What will I learn?

The structure of our society roads, bridges, tunnels, railroads, dams, and airports all depend on the skill of civil engineers. To a large extent, so does the health, safety, and welfare of the individuals in that society. In fact, civil engineers have saved more lives, through clean water and sanitation systems, than all of the doctors in history.

In the University of New Haven’s B.S. in civil engineering program, students participate in a multi-disciplinary curriculum that combines mathematics, science, communication, humanities, and social science with a broad base of civil engineering technologies.

Through this program, you will also:

  • Narrow your focus by choosing a specialty in structural, geotechnical, environmental, or water-resources engineering
  • Design and conduct experiments, then analyze and interpret the data
  • Study project management, city planning, transportation, and surveying
  • Learn to design systems, components and processes to meet needs and comply with economic, environmental, social, political, and ethical constraints
  • Be able to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems
  • Understand the impact of engineering in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts
  • Learn from practical and laboratory experience
  • Gain experience through at least one internship
  • Develop skills in entrepreneurship, marketing, and business
  • Use the most sophisticated, high-tech products in the field, including GPS, GIS, CAD, and task-specific computer software
