Civil engineers shape the world we live in by analyzing, planning, designing, constructing and maintaining the “built” environment— the communities and infrastructure we rely on for safe, healthy and sustainable living. You’ll learn about the many subdisciplines that comprise civil engineering such as environmental, construction, geotechnical, hydrotechnical, materials, structural, transportation and urban engineering. Courses and lab work in topics such as soil mechanics and foundation design, construction management, design of steel, concrete and timber structures, as well as municipal infrastructure design, coastal engineering and environmental impact studies will inspire you to learn more.

Civil engineers are in high demand, working for example as project managers or design consultants, across all industrial sectors and government. Focus your creativity and help build tomorrow’s world.
