Civil engineers use their knowledge of science and engineering to design and maintain much of our world's infrastructure. They also apply their expertise to improve our quality of life, whether it's by designing safer buildings, reducing our carbon footprint or just shortening your commute. Their work helps solve many of our planet's most serious problems, including decaying roadways, clogged highways, polluted water and hazardous wastes.
Civil engineers generally specialize in a particular area. Our department offers five areas of specialization for students:
Two cooperative training programs are available for civil engineering students. Both programs offer financial assistance through summer employment with the participating organizations.
