Designing sustainable infrastructure for society.
Designing the infrastructure that makes modern societies work is what civil engineering is all about. From highways and bridges to dams and airports, civil engineers design and manage the public and private works that make modern life possible.
This program gives you the advanced education you will need to design and supervise the construction of structural systems such as bridges, roads, airports and tunnels, or water and wastewater treatment systems. 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 your designs.
You can customize your studies to focus on environmental engineering, geotechnical engineering, hydraulics and water resources engineering, structural engineering or transportation engineering.
This program could be a good fit if you:
- Hold an undergraduate degree in civil engineering
- Want to specialize in an area of civil engineering without doing a thesis project
- Like to solve complex problems
- Have a strong work ethic
- Work well as part of a team
With this degree, you will have more specialized training that will put you in a position to be a project manager for any number of companies or agencies or be a design lead in a consulting firm
