• Overview
  • The infrastructure that supports society.

    Building and maintaining the infrastructure that makes modern societies work. That’s what civil engineering is all about. From highways and bridges to dams and airports, civil engineers design, build and manage the public and private works that make modern life possible.

    This program gives you the advanced education to design and supervise the construction of structural systems such as bridges, roads, airports and tunnels, as well as water systems for supply and sewage processing. You will gain the skills to become a valuable asset to engineering firms with the ability to factor all costs, regulations, hazards and maintenance into the safety and efficiency of their designs.

    You can customize your studies to focus on environmental and sanitary engineering, geotechnical engineering, hydraulics and water resources engineering, structural engineering and structural mechanics, or transportation engineering.
