About the Major

bs-civil-engineering

Our Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering (BSCE) prepares students for careers in structural, geotechnical, transportation, environmental, water resources, and construction engineering. Civil engineers will help solve critical challenges of the 21st century by rebuilding our nation’s infrastructure; planning, designing, constructing, and maintaining our built environment while protecting our natural resources; and leading multidisciplinary teams to achieve a sustainable world and raise the global quality of life.

Our program provides undergraduate laboratories and student-oriented collaborative space for research and project-based learning opportunities. Students creatively develop innovative solutions to issues facing society working alongside engaged faculty members and professional practitioners.

About the Minor

The Civil Engineering minor is an opportunity for students to take courses within the Civil Engineering program to gain hands-on experience related to water resources, construction, design, and more.

Students have the opportunity to participate in many different engineering clubs like the American Society of Civil Engineering (ASCE), Engineers Without Borders (EWB), and Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE). As an added bonus, the Construction Institute which is part of the University’s rich academic environment, provides meaningful opportunities for students to learn from the Institute’s members through internships, lectures, and career preparation activities.

With our emphasis on undergraduate education, there are also many opportunities for undergraduate students to earn money by assisting faculty with their funded research. With the strong support of our alumni, there is a solid network available to help our students with paid internships during the school year and summer.

 

GRANTS AND FELLOWSHIP

Over $200,000 in merit and need-based engineering scholarships are awarded annually to the college’s top-performing and most engaged students. In addition, the College of Engineering, Technology, and Architecture (CETA) supports paid undergraduate student research on joint faculty-student projects, and opportunities to work on research funded by our industrial partners and government agencies.

SUCCESSFUL GRADUATES

Our industrial and local/state government partners, alumni, and faculty work closely with our career services department, to provide a strong and robust network so students can obtain paid internships during the school year and summer. Along with academic success in the classroom and involvement in extracurricular activities, these internships provide our graduates an added advantage to begin their career as a successful practicing engineer or continuing onto graduate school.

Ryann Yearwood

BSCE, 2019

Ryann found a new love for engineering through the civil engineering program at UHart. She was also very involved on campus as the President of BSU (Brothers and Sisters United)—the oldest multicultural organization at the University; as well as the Vice-President of the Hip-Hop group on campus called Fenomena, and also the Torch Chair for the National Society of Black Engineers at UHart. Ryann recently got hired to be an Engineering Associate at the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power and will be moving to California in July.

旧5xsq社区视费视频在线I started out as a biomedical engineer, but transferred when I realized it wasn’t for me. I soon fell in love with civil engineering and never looked back.

Admission Requirements

Interested in enrolling in the Civil Engineering program under the College of Engineering, Technology, and Architecture (CETA)? Here is what you need to submit your application.

4+1 Program (B.S. + M.Eng degrees)

The program is designed to allow full-time engineering students to earn their B.S. and M.Eng. degrees in five years of study. Two graduate-level courses taken in the undergraduate program may be applied to both undergraduate and graduate degree requirements. Students usually commit to the program at the start of the second semester of their junior year, and juniors who are interested should contact their department chair.

In order to be accepted into the program, students must have a 3.0 cumulative grade point average at the end of the junior year (below 3.0 will be considered on a case-by-case basis).

Contact Laurie Granstrand旧5xsq社区视费视频在线 to learn more.

Accreditation

The Civil Engineering program is accredited by  - Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC).

Program Educational Objectives (PEOs)

The undergraduate Civil Engineering program seeks to prepare qualified students for entry-level professional practice in civil engineering and for entrance into appropriate graduate programs. During their careers, our alumni

  1. will be successful practicing engineers in the areas of design, analysis, and realization of design in one or more of the major areas of civil engineering, including environmental, geotechnical, structural, transportation, and water resources;
  2. will successfully apply the fundamentals of engineering analysis and engineering design to the formulation and solution of emerging technical problems as contributing members of multidisciplinary engineering teams.

The engineering design experience is distributed over the entire engineering curriculum. Engineering design continues through the senior capstone design project. The majority of the design work is incorporated into the junior and senior years to ensure that the students have taken sufficient preparatory engineering science courses.

Basic concepts of physics, chemistry, and mathematics are the foundation on which all engineering education is built. Basic tools of engineering, such as graphic communication and computer usage and programming, are also required knowledge. The engineering sciences, such as solid and fluid mechanics and thermodynamics, complete the introductory phase of the program.

Civil Engineering is generally considered to consist of several branches:

  • Construction
  • Structures
  • Transportation
  • Environment
  • Water Resources
  • Geotechnical

All Civil Engineering program graduates are required to complete at least one course in each of the branches except construction. Additional elective courses are available in each of the branches. Through choice of electives, a student may become specialized in one of the branches or remain a generalist.

Extensive laboratory experience enhances the course work. There are several required laboratory courses in the sciences, materials, engineering, and natural phenomena. Written communication of laboratory results is required.

Through participation in the All-University Curriculum and in additional elective courses in the humanities and/or social sciences, students are given the opportunity to broaden their perspectives and to take part in the larger learning community of the University. It is imperative that engineers understand and appreciate the special role that technology plays in our society and the interactions between and among the various components of our society.

Student Outcomes

The student learning outcomes of the Civil Engineering program leading to BSCE degree are aligned with the student learning outcomes of ABET EAC (1 through 7), and prepare graduates of the program to attain the program educational objectives.

Student outcomes (1) through (7) are articulated as follows:

(1) 旧5xsq社区视费视频在线an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics

(2) 旧5xsq社区视费视频在线an ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors

(3) 旧5xsq社区视费视频在线an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences

(4) an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts

(5) 旧5xsq社区视费视频在线an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives

(6) an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions

(7) an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
