The department offers three undergraduate degrees:
- Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering,
- Bachelor of Science in Architectural Engineering and
- Bachelor of Science in Environmental Engineering.
Civil engineers are leaders in the planning, design, construction, and operation of systems that are essential to modern life. These systems include: buildings, highways, airports, pipelines, bridges, dams, irrigation systems, drainage systems, water-supply and distribution systems, and wastewater collection and treatment works. Civil engineers are employed by government agencies, public utility companies, private consulting firms, construction companies, architectural firms, and universities.
Architectural engineers are leaders in the planning, design, construction, and operation of engineered systems for commercial, industrial, and institutional buildings and other facilities. These engineered systems include electrical, communications and control, lighting, heating, ventilating, air conditioning, fire protection, plumbing, acoustic, and structural components. Architectural engineers are employed by consulting firms, construction companies, facility management companies, HVAC equipment manufacturers, architectural firms, government agencies, and universities.
Environmental engineers are leaders in the application of engineering principles to improve and maintain the environment for the protection of human health, for the protection of nature’s beneficial ecosystems, and for environment-related enhancement of the quality of human life. Environmental engineers are employed by government agencies, consulting firms, and universities.
