Civil & Environmental Engineering
Civil Engineers are involved in the planning, design, construction, and operation of facilities essential to modern life. These built systems include: airports, water supply systems, bridges and roadways, water treatment plants, dams and reservoirs, space and aircraft structures, and power supply structures, to name a few. The mission of the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department is to produce Civil Engineers who will become innovative practitioners, leaders, researchers and entrepreneurs. The department will attract and retain high quality faculty and maintain state-of-the-art infrastructure to achieve excellence in teaching, research and service. The department, through its rigorous curriculum, hands-on laboratory experiences and design-oriented course projects, will train students in a broad range of civil topics and engage them in research and service activities, so that they can make significant contributions to society and in improving the quality of life.
The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, a component of the Roy G. Perry College of Engineering, subscribes to and supports the goals of the College and the University. One objective of the program is to produce civil engineers for leadership in the profession. As such, a primary focus of the department is excellence in civil engineering education with the ultimate goal of promoting graduate research and excellence in civil engineering practice. The Civil Engineering Program Educational Objectives are provided below.
Civil Engineering program graduates will:
- Have careers in civil engineering or related fields that lead to increasing levels of responsibility and leadership;
- Obtain professional licensure/certification;
- Complete graduate studies in civil engineering or related fields;
- Engage in professional development and service.
