Description of the major
The program in Civil and Environmental Engineering is designed to provide the basic undergraduate education required for private practice and public service in civil engineering, and/or graduate education. Emphasis is placed on the fundamentals of civil engineering principles and design techniques. Students utilize basic engineering science concepts in several of the different specialty areas (e.g., construction/management, environmental, materials/pavement design/geotechnical, structures, transportation, and water resources). Students choose an area of specialization for professional practice or graduate studies. Their area of specialization culminates in a capstone design experience.
