Major in civil engineering

Civil engineering is the engineering of the constructed facilities we encounter every day:

  • buildings, bridges, tunnels, and dams
  • waterways, railways, and highways
  • water power, irrigation, drainage, and water supply
  • wastewater and hazardous waste disposal
  • environmental health systems

As a civil engineering major, you'll learn how to plan, design, construct, and manage public and private infrastructure and facilities. You'll also be prepared to address emerging engineering issues related to sustainability, climate change, and new energy resources.

The bachelor's degree program in civil engineering also offers a concentration in environmental resources engineering. Engineers in this field apply civil engineering principles and processes to solve problems relating to air pollution, water pollution, solid waste and hazardous waste management, renewable energy, and water resources engineering.
