Civil engineers plan, design, develop, build, manage, rehabilitate and operate the physical elements of the human habitat. Almost every aspect of every day life is impacted by projects conceived, designed and constructed by civil engineers.

Civil Engineering, like all other fields, is comprised of many subdisciplines. Primary areas of concentration include transportation, geotechnical, environmental, structural engineering, and construction engineering and management. 


Engineering Exploratory

The School of Engineering offers eight different majors and concentrations. If you are interested in Engineering but aren't sure that a structural/geotechnical engineering concentration is right for you, you can begin your studies as an Engineering Exploratory student. Exploratory students take math and science courses that serve as a foundation for the different specializations available in the Engineering field. These classes also fulfill requirements for various majors in the School of Engineering.
