Whether you choose to pursue a bachelor of science degree in civil engineering, an integrated bachelor-master's degree in architectural engineering, or a graduate degree in civil or construction engineering, you’ll see why the Department of Civil and Architectural Engineering enjoys an excellent reputation with employers in all these engineering disciplines.
Not only do we offer architectural and civil engineering programs fully accredited by ABET, our professors are continuously revitalizing the curricula to prepare graduates to serve the needs of the society as well as the built and natural environment. Our professors perform practical research and projects with areas of specialization that make them highly qualified to teach in their fields.
Additionally, the department was one of the first in the country to align student outcomes with CEBOK3, also known as the Civil Engineering Body of Knowledge, which defines the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to enter the field of civil engineering at the professional level.
The University has a selective admissions process, the objective of which is to identify men and women who have the highest potential for advancement in their chosen field of study.
Architectural engineers analyze the site, building orientation, and exposure; design the heating, cooling, lighting, and power distribution systems; ensure fire protection; and design the structural elements of the building.
Civil engineers are leaders in the design, construction, and maintenance of the infrastructure society depends upon, including airports, bridges, buildings, highways, ports, and waterways.
