Civil Engineering Department

Civil engineering is a professional engineering discipline that deals with the design, construction and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment. Civil engineering is all about creating, improving and protecting the environment in which we live. It provides the facilities for day-to-day life and for transport and industry to go about its work. Without civil engineers we wouldn’t have a constant supply of clean water, roads or trains to get to work in the morning, or sustainable energy to help us save our planet. The civil engineering program is designed to give students a broad background in all areas of civil engineering, permitting specialization in the senior year. Practical applications are emphasized with sufficient theory so that the individual can grow with the future as new materials, methods, and designs develop.
