Civil Engineering, Bachelor of Science Degree
What will I learn in a civil engineering degree program?
Successful engineering students arrive at the University with a strong background in math and science. We recommend students have taken physics and chemistry courses in high school and are prepared to take calculus as freshmen.
Our program teaches students to make engineering and design decisions while considering a broad range of factors such as sustainability, aesthetic values, and environmental, economic, legal and technical limitations.
Graduates of the bachelor's degree program in civil engineering are trained to:
- Apply their engineering knowledge and problem-solving skills in a professional environment
- Analyze and design civil infrastructure systems
- Work as members or leaders of multidisciplinary teams
- Continue their education through graduate studies or ongoing professional development hours
- Understand and communicate technical, social, environmental and ethical issues to society at large
- Be aware of contemporary issues and engage in life-long learning
