Civil and Environmental Engineering

Not many degree programs allow you to use something as large as an earthquake simulator to conduct your studies. But civil and environmental engineers do just that.

Graduates of the civil and environmental engineering program are prepared to handle the nation's increasing demand for infrastructure projects like expanded transportation, energy-efficient construction, water supply and pollution control systems.
