Introduction to Civil Engineering
The “Civil” in Civil Engineering comes from civilization. Many aspects of civilized life can be credited to Civil Engineering. Civil Engineers plan, design and construct the buildings, bridges, facilities, and transportation systems that make the world work. Their designs affect all aspects of the environment and society holds them responsible for their design decisions. Engineers are leaders and are constantly looking for ways to provide society with an improved standard of living.
Graduate students should enter one of two programs: those whose goal is broad professional practice will ordinarily choose the curriculum leading to the Master of Civil Engineering degree; those whose interests or background favor a specialized program with emphasis on research and/or advanced specialized study will ordinarily select the Master of Science in Civil Engineering degree.
A degree program can include courses in Environmental Quality Engineering, Engineering Management, and other areas in addition to the Civil Engineering courses.
