Civil engineers plan, design and supervise the construction of water supply systems, communications networks and transportation systems. They construct buildings and foundations. Using modern technology, they solve pollution and planning problems and tackle other engineering challenges. The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering offers both bachelor’s and master’s degree programs. The undergraduate program includes course work in construction, environmental, geotechnical, structural, transportation and water resources engineering. Classroom instruction is supplemented by hands-on laboratory experiences, and the opportunity to participate in student clubs, including the American Society of Civil Engineers, Associated General Contractors, Institute of Transportation Engineers, Water Environmental Federation and American Water Works Association. To accommodate graduate students who also work, graduate courses are scheduled in the late afternoon and evening. The undergraduate program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.
