Available as an accredited bachelor of science in engineering (B.S.E) degree with a concentration in civil engineering
You benefit from a civil engineer's work whenever you drive through a tunnel, visit a public building or drink from a water fountain.
Civil engineers enhance travel and commerce, ensure safe
drinking water and sanitation, and protect communities from earthquakes and
floods. These engineers strive to create structures that are as beautiful and
environmentally sound as they are functional and cost-effective.
