Our civil engineering undergraduate program emphasizes open-ended problems, global awareness and undergraduate research. The program is characterized by a high degree of faculty-student interactions, both inside and outside the classroom.
As a civil engineer, you could help build a school that could withstand an earthquake, a road system that puts an end to chronic traffic jams, or a sports stadium that offers everyone a great view. You could also work on geotechnical field design projects and evaluate the soils, groundwater, and environmental conditions that impact construction.
