By completing our civil engineering program, students will:
- Achieve personal and professional growth by pursuing licensure, professional development activities, advanced studies and new career opportunities.
- Develop career paths by applying strong civil engineering, problem solving, business, leadership and communication skills to meet the expectations of their employers and society.
- Engage with the public by serving diverse communities locally, nationally and internationally.
You will gain a solid theoretical foundation of mathematics and science as the basis for their study of required technical courses in structures, hydraulics, surveying, environmental protection, transportation, and materials.
Many of our science and technology courses supplement lectures with laboratory experiences using equipment typical of that found in industry, ensuring that graduates of the program are familiar with current technical practices and are able to apply theory to real-world situations.
Internships, which may carry University credit, are available with local companies for students who wish to obtain work experience during their studies.
Subject to the review of the faculty, incoming students may receive credit for previous course work at comparable institutions or for technical experience gained on the job. Agreements with other local institutions allow our students to register for courses that are offered elsewhere, giving them the opportunity to pursue subjects not taught on campus during a particular term.
A full schedule of evening and weekend classes gives you the ability to earn a four-year degree while working full time during the day. We have a long history of educating part-time working students and offering additional resources and assistance.
