Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering

The Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering degree, combines the study of sciences, general engineering, design engineering and civil engineering with the study of liberal arts. Together with our Industrial Advisory Board, we have defined a critical set of outcomes and objectives for our students and alumni.    

Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering Program Educational Objectives and Student Outcomes.

Civil_Engineering_Man_on_LadderThe civil engineering curriculum provides a foundation in: mathematics, statistics, surveying, computer-aided design, theoretical and applied mechanics, fluid mechanics, hydraulic and hydrological systems, environmental engineering, geotechnical engineering, materials, engineering economic analysis, construction, structural design, transportation, ethics and professional practice.

The B.S. in Civil Engineering degree program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET (

Students graduating with a major in civil engineering will meet the program objectives and outcomes designed to exceed the requirements of ABET's Engineering Criteria. These are a comprehensive set of criteria designed to provide graduates with the technical, ethical, attitudinal, and communications skills required to be a productive contributor to society and to aggressively seek life-long learning experiences.
