Structural Engineering - beam test.

The undergraduate major in Civil Engineering (CE) provides for two alternative tracks, one focusing on structures and construction and the second focusing on environmental and water studies. The CE degree program is ABET accredited and prepares students for professional practice or possible graduate study in engineering or other fields.

The Civil Engineering Curriculum

The undergraduate civil engineering curriculum includes a core, to be taken by all declared majors, that provides a broad introduction to the major areas of civil engineering. Two tracks then allow students to take additional specialized course work in either Environmental and Water Studies or Structures and Construction. For specific course listings and requirements, see the Civil Engineering section of the School of Engineering's undergraduate studies handbook (PDF document).

Beam TestEnvironmental Systems Engineering - incorporating environmentally sustainable design, strategies and practices into natural and built systems

For civil and environmental engineering in the 21st Century, engineers must be equipped to be adaptable, ready to take on new, complex challenges involving natural and built environments. The Environmental Systems Engineering major is designed to prepare students for incorporating environmentally sustainable design, strategies and practices into natural and built systems and infrastructure involving buildings, water supply, and coastal regions.
