Department of Agricultural, Civil and Environmental Engineering.
Undergraduate Program in Civil Engineering.
Civil engineering consists of the application of the laws, forces, and materials of nature to the planning, design, construction, maintenance, and operation of public and private facilities, subject to economic, social, and environmental constraints. Commonly included are transportation systems; bridges and buildings; water supply, pollution control, waste management, irrigation, and drainage systems; river and harbor improvements; dams and reservoirs. Civil engineering also includes the planning, design, and responsible execution of surveying operations, and the location, delimitation, and delineation of physical and cultural features on the surface of the earth. Research, testing, sales, management, and related functions are also a part of civil engineering. Work on the campus is supplemented by inspection trips, which furnish an opportunity for firsthand study of engineering systems in operation, as well as projects under construction.
Environmental engineering, as a specialty area in civil engineering, is concerned with protecting the public and natural health; providing safe, palatable and ample water supply; management of solid and hazardous waste; proper treatment and disposal of domestic and industrial waste waters and waste; resource recovery; providing adequate drainage of urban and rural areas for sanitation; and the control of water quality, soil contamination, and air pollution. At the undergraduate level, the study of various environmental and water resource engineering topics is part of the course of study leading to the bachelor degree in civil engineering.
Consultation with an industrial advisory board of employers of civil engineers, with a broad base of civil engineering educators, and with students has yielded a continuous process of program planning, program assessment, curriculum development, and instructional development to produce an integrated, learning-
By three to five years after graduation, graduates of the civil engineering program will have:
Established themselves in successful careers in civil engineering or a related field.
Collaborated effectively on multi-
Pursued lifelong learning, professional development, and registration as appropriate for their employers.
The faculty encourages the development of the student’s professional skills through participation in internships, or progressive summer engineering employment.
