Undergraduate Program


The civil and environmental engineering undergraduate program is designed to offer students a broad-based education in the freshman and sophomore years and a more focused education in the junior and senior years. The jobs available in the field of civil and environmental engineering are diverse, so a broad base is provided to prepare graduates for a variety of positions. Further specialization after the senior year is offered through graduate education, where students focus on specific aspects of civil or environmental engineering.

The Department places a high priority on undergraduate advising. Our experienced undergraduate advisor counsels our diverse student body towards successful and timely completion of their undergraduate objectives. Students cannot register for classes until after they have been advised each semester.

The undergraduate experience in civil and environmental engineering is enhanced by participation in student activities, which are often related to professional development.

Students are eligible for a variety of scholarships to help support educational costs and reward strong work. Scholarships and financial aid opportunities are available through the University, as well as through Departmental awards.
