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.

The Bachelor of Engineering program in civil engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET, https://www.abet.org.
