The civil engineer applies a wide spectrum of engineering, scientific, and economic principles to plan, design, and oversee a wide variety of public and private infrastructure projects which improve the quality of life, protect the environment, and facilitate economic growth. These projects include roads and highways, railroads, mass transit systems, airports, bridges, buildings, structures, harbors, flood control and drainage works, water supply, treatment and distribution systems, wastewater treatment and reuse systems, irrigation systems, pipelines, and power plants.
The mission of the Department of Civil Engineering and Environmental Science is to provide opportunities for students to develop the skills and knowledge necessary to become productive professionals through a rigorous, student-centered curriculum that balances theory and practice, serving the needs of society by emphasizing sustainability and environmental justice and meets the challenges of an ever-changing, complex world through a dynamic engineering program.
