Undergraduate Degrees in Civil Engineering

Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering


Students specializing in Civil Engineering will complete two semesters in the General Engineering Studies Division and a further period of study in the Professional School of Engineering - nine semesters in the Basic Studies Division (for the Bachelor of Science degree). This curriculum has a cooperative education component that is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, Inc.

Subject matter in this program is highly computer-oriented and follows a computer-aided engineering approach. Appropriate design experiences are presented to students throughout the civil engineering curriculum, starting with CEE 260 (surveying) at the sophomore level, where basic group dynamics and open-ended project development concepts are introduced. Design experiences continue through CEE 680 (capstone design). At the junior level (e.g., CEE 370), students are taught many of the fundamentals required to perform more extensive open-ended design projects in civil engineering.
