About

Civil, architectural, and environmental engineers are entrusted by society to create a sustainable world and enhance the global quality of life through the design, construction, and operation of the built environment as well as the protection of the natural environment. 

  • Civil engineers are leaders in the design, construction, and operation of systems that are essential to modern life. These systems include: buildings, highways, airports, pipelines, tunnels, ports, bridges, dams, irrigation systems, drainage systems, water-supply and distribution systems, and wastewater-treatment works. 
  • Architectural engineers are leaders in the analysis, design, construction, and operation of engineered systems for buildings. These building systems include electrical, communications and control, lighting, heating, ventilating, air conditioning, fire protection, plumbing, acoustic, and structural systems. 
  • Environmental engineers are leaders in the application of engineering principles to improve and maintain the environment for the protection of human health, and for the protection of nature’s beneficial ecosystems. 

Civil, architectural, and environmental engineers are employed by government agencies, public and private companies, construction companies, architectural firms, and universities.

The quality of our programs are highly regarded within the engineering community, and we have an outstanding reputation within the engineering profession. Our faculty are world-class, and our graduates are highly sought after. We offer the following baccalaureate degrees:
