Civil engineering focuses on teaching students to apply their scientific and engineering knowledge to the construction of infrastructure projects. Students study buildings, bridges, highways and foundations, and learn to make decisions about engineering and design that take social, economic and environmental concerns into account.
The minor in civil engineering requires 18 credits, 12 of which must be upper-division courses approved by the chair of both the major and minor departments.
