The Department of Civil, Construction and Environmental Engineering offers two degree programs giving the student an opportunity to earn a Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering and in Construction Engineering. The undergraduate degree program in civil engineering allows students to declare and earn a major in environmental engineering or civil engineering. In addition, the undergraduate degree program in civil engineering allows students to specialize in construction engineering, environmental and water resources engineering, structural engineering and structural mechanics and transportation engineering and planning. Unless appropriate paperwork has been filed/approved the major is "civil engineering".
