Civil engineering is the engineering of facilities and systems. The civil engineering department offers five tracks within the BS in civil engineering degree.

General Track

The general track allows the student to pursue a BS in civil engineering degree in a broader general program or, if a specific career objective has been identified, to concentrate on one or more areas within the general track. The following areas of concentration are available:

Water resources

Design and construction of reservoirs, canal systems, and dams for flood control, irrigation, power, and water supply.

Geotechnical

Foundations for structures, earth embankments, retaining walls and bulkheads, and pavements for highways and airports.

Environmental

Protection of public health and environmental quality through planning and designing facilities for water treatment and distribution; wastewater, solid, and hazardous wastes collection, treatment, and disposal; and air pollution control.
