Undergraduate Programs

Our department offers a highly ranked, comprehensive undergraduate curriculum, which requires 128 hours of course work leading to a Bachelor of Science degree in civil engineering or environmental engineering.

The first two years of study for undergraduate students build the base needed for the civil and environmental engineering education: students take physics, math, chemistry, theoretical and applied mechanics, and some general engineering courses. Students can also take several electives at this time.

The last two years of study involve primarily civil and environmental engineering courses. For the civil engineering degree, students elect a primary and secondary area of study from the seven areas of study and three interdisciplinary programs within the department. The environmental engineering degree comprises five areas of concentration.
