• Civil Engineering

    Our program provides state-of-the-art education in a learning, caring and nurturing environment to allow students to develop and to become productive members of society, thereby continuing with the time-honored duty of protecting the public's health, safety, and welfare.

  • Construction Management

    Construction managers coordinate activities on a wide variety of projects, working with architects and engineers, bankers and finance experts and product suppliers. They ultimately control the building process, managing laborers and interacting with clients at completion.

Welcome to the department

The mission of the civil engineering and construction management department is to provide state-of-the-art education in a caring and nurturing environment, helping students achieve their full potential.

Civil Engineering

Civil engineering extends across many technical specialties, such as construction, environmental, geological, structures, transportation and water resources which interact with each other. The planning, designing and constructing of facilities and infrastructure systems used in public and private sectors are the responsibility of the civil engineer. Civil engineers work with other professionals such as architects, urban planners, and policy makers to design and construct buildings and operating infrastructures such as bridges, highways, aerospace facilities, ocean structures, ports and harbors, and utility facilities. Many civil engineers are involved in the solution and prevention of environmental problems and work on water resources management, soil and groundwater cleanup, and solid and hazardous waste management. Employment opportunities in civil engineering can be found in technical, administrative or commercial work with engineering consulting companies involved in design, construction, transportation, or manufacturing; with power companies; with city, state or federal agencies; with consulting companies involved with land development; and with architects.

Construction Management

The construction management degree program is designed to develop construction industry professionals with an understanding of basic engineering design coupled with the management and business subjects such as project management, contracting, budgeting and cost control. The program incorporates current social, economic and technical developments in the field of construction, and reflects the application of evolving knowledge in construction and the behavioral and quantitative sciences. Construction managers efficiently convert the designs prepared by engineers into finished projects.
