Civil, Environmental and Ocean Engineering Undergraduate Studies

Real-World Experience Prepares You for Post-Graduation Success

The Department of Civil, Environmental and Ocean Engineering promotes the use of engineering approaches to solve societal challenges concerning the built and natural environment. Our undergraduate programs programs fall into three categories: civil engineering, environmental engineering, and naval engineering.

A low student to faculty ratio and small class size means easy access to faculty, personalized instruction and more effective class participation. Other educational advantages afforded by our programs include:

  • CEOE students who pursue a master’s degree have the advantage of advancing to competitive positions through leveraging advanced skills and knowledge beyond what is covered in the undergraduate degree program.

  • Opportunity to earn special scholarships designated to specific fields in CEOE.

  • Access to the Davidson Laboratory and other state-of-the-art facilities
