Civil Engineering Bachelor’s Program Curriculum Overview

The civil engineering bachelor’s program combines a broad-based core engineering curriculum, and a substantial experience in the humanities and in business engineering management, with specialization in civil engineering. Within the sequence of civil engineering courses, students have the flexibility to concentrate in structural, transportation, geotechnical, water resources, environmental engineering, and construction management.

By the end of this program, you will be able to:

  • Use mathematics and mechanics to find the loading distribution on structures.
  • Create preliminary designs of steel and concrete frames using the latest codes and software.
  • Design the foundations of structures, watersheds, storm-water basins.
  • Utilize surveying equipment to develop topographic maps for construction projects.
  • Analyze different design alternatives based on the needs of the client, and environmental and economic considerations.
  • Complete a real-world design project in view of design criteria, relevant codes and standards, technical drawings and specifications.

Sample Core Course Topics Include:

  • Structural Analysis
  • Concrete Structures
  • Steel Structures
