The academic programs in the
Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering lead to undergraduate and
graduate degrees in civil and/or environmental engineering. There are also
special interdisciplinary programs. Finally, the department also offers a slate
of continuing education and short courses which are discussed in the "outreach
and public service" section of our pages.
The hallmark of our programs is the flexibility to accommodate the needs of
both traditional and non-traditional students without sacrificing the rigor
required for our graduates to meet the challenges confronting the engineer in
the 21st century. Our undergraduate program is fully accredited, and our BS
graduates (and graduate students) are well prepared to obtain their
professional engineering licenses.
We pride ourselves in preparing our undergraduates to be highly competitive in
both the engineering marketplace and graduate programs in engineering (or other
fields). Our undergraduate and graduate programs provide a good mix of the
theoretical and applied-this is a direct result of our faculty having training
from the best schools in the country and significant levels of experience in
consulting, with public agencies, and in industry.
