Civil engineering is the design, construction and maintenance of facilities and systems for the general public or private sector. 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:

Construction Engineering

Consideration of both project management and field engineering issues during construction of facilities and systems.


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.


Design and assessment of a variety of buildings and bridges, as well as structural systems for aircrafts, pressure vessels, ships, space vehicles, tanks, and towers.
