Environmental Program

The Civil Engineering curriculum combines a broad-based education with focus on science (e.g. Math, Physics and Chemistry), engineering analysis (e.g. Environmental Engineering, Fluid and Soil Mechanics, Transportation, Structures, Sustainability, and Construction Management) and design (e.g. Concrete Structures, Steel Structures, Water and Wastewater Treatment Facilities, Pavement, and Foundations). Specializations include structural engineering, geotechnical and pavement engineering, environmental Engineering, water resources, and construction management. Most Civil and environmental engineers are involved with essential facilities and structures such as buildings, bridges, dams, highways, airports, as well as water, wastewater, and solid/hazardous waste treatment facilities.
