Civil engineering is the art and science used in the construction of facilities which people need in their environment — land, water and air. Airports, buildings, bridges, dams, harbors, highways, irrigation systems, transportation systems, sewerage and water supply systems are examples of the types of facilities which are the responsibility of the civil engineer. The civil engineering degree program develops the analysis and design capabilities of the student in the study of structures and systems. The application of computers and pertinent software is used throughout the major. A broad educational program can be selected or some specialization is possible through advised elective course selection. The environmental engineering major within the civil engineering degree provides students with a fundamental background in civil engineering and specialization in the field of environmental engineering.
Program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
