Civil Engineering at Stevens
Civil engineering is one of the most visible technical fields that 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, students 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, students have the flexibility to focus in structural, geotechnical, water resources, environmental engineering, and construction management. Students thoroughly explore mechanics, and develop a strong foundation in science, mathematics and computation.Students 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, students are 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.
