Learn the versatile skill set needed to build a successful career in civil engineering.
Civil engineering is one of the most visible technical fields. It draws on aspects of physics, mathematics, project management, and many other areas. In addition to planning, designing and supervising the construction of public facilities — skyscrapers, roads, bridges, ports, irrigation systems and more — civil engineers are also involved in business, managing natural resources, addressing climate hazards, and modern societal challenges of all kinds.
At Stevens, you'll pursue a broad-based curriculum that provides a firm foundation in engineering, as well as substantial experience in the humanities and business engineering management. Within the sequence of civil engineering courses, you have the flexibility to focus in structural, geotechnical, water resources, environmental engineering, and construction management. You'll thoroughly explore mechanics, and develop a strong foundation in science, mathematics and computation. You'll also receive hands-on, industry experience through senior design projects, co-ops, and study abroad programs.
Studying in the heart of the tri-state area, you'll be surrounded by modern marvels of civil engineering, as well as some of the top firms in the field. Partnerships with industrial firms, engineering consulting firms and construction contractors in the public and private sector, as well as various government agencies, offer an array of opportunities to connect with the real-world of civil engineering.
An ABET Accredited Program
This undergraduate program is accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology.
The mission of the civil engineering program at Stevens Institute of Technology is to educate a new generation of civil engineers who are leaders in the profession. The educational program emphasizes technical competence, professional practice, leadership, life-long learning, civic contribution, and entrepreneurship. The program of study combines a broad- based core engineering curriculum, a substantial experience in the humanities and in business and engineering management, with specialization in civil engineering. Within the sequence of civil engineering courses, the students have the flexibility to concentrate in structural, geotechnical, water resources, transportation engineering, construction management and environmental engineering.
The objectives of the civil engineering program are provided in terms of our expectations for our graduates. Within several years of graduation:
Our graduates will be known for tackling challenging civil engineering problems through visionary planning and innovative, resilient, equitable and sustainable designs
Our graduates will be recognized for upholding the highest ethical principles in addressing complex professional and social problems that will face future civil engineers
Our graduates will practice teamwork and attain leadership positions and will broadly benefit society while advancing the civil engineering profession, its domain and impact
By the time of graduation, students majoring in civil engineering will have the ability to:
Identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
Apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social and environmental, and economic factors
Communicate effectively with a rage of audiences, writing and presenting technical content
Recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgements, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts
Function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives
Develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgement to draw conclusions
Acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies
Understand the steps involved in taking a technology from conception to market, and can demonstrate these steps by an actual or hypothetical example
