Department Vision & Mission Statement
Civil engineers are entrusted by society to create a sustainable future and enhance the world’s quality of life as planners, designers, constructors, and operators of society’s economic and social engine—the built environment; as stewards of the natural environment and its resources; as innovators and integrators of ideas and technology across the public, private, and academic sectors; as managers of risk and uncertainty caused by natural events, accidents, and other threats; and as leaders in discussions and decisions shaping public environmental and infrastructure policy. The civil engineering curriculum is designed to prepare graduates to enter this exciting and dynamic profession; pursue advanced studies; and become a licensed professional civil engineer. Civil engineers have many career opportunities in both the private and public sectors of society depending on their interests.
