Is Engineering for You?

Engineering is the application of science to the well-being, safety, comfort, and productivity of society. Engineers design systems and ensure that efficient and durable versions of these systems are built. They work with people. They solve technical and social problems through the development of physical systems, processes, and the use of modern materials. If this kind of challenge and work appeals to you, then by all means consider engineering as a career choice. 

 

Baccalaureate Programs

  • Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering
    The primary objective of the program is to prepare graduates for professional practice in civil engineering. After foundation courses in mathematics, science, and engineering mechanics, students complete courses that cover seven areas of civil engineering. Additional professional electives provide either specialization or additional breadth within civil engineering and related fields.

  • Bachelor of Science in Bio-Resources Engineering
    The Bio-Resources Engineering Option is similar to the Civil Engineering Option. Students are not required to take a second course in structures and take additional courses in water resources and environmental engineering.

  • Bachelor of Science in Construction Engineering Technology
    The primary objective of the Construction Engineering Technology program is to prepare graduates for project management in the construction industry. After foundation courses in mathematics, science, and engineering mechanics, the curriculum is a combination of technical and management courses. Professional electives provide either specialization or additional breadth in construction and related fields.

Master Programs

  • Master of Science in Civil Engineering
    For the M.S. degree, major study is offered in various combinations of the subject areas of transportation engineering, geotechnical engineering, fluid mechanics, hydraulic and hydrologic engineering, structural engingeering, engineering mechanics and environmental engineering.
