Spencer Engineering Building,
The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering offers an accredited program in Civil Engineering. Civil Engineering is focused on a number of areas of specialization including environmental engineering, structural engineering, geotechnical engineering, hydraulic engineering and municipal engineering. Students may take the Environmental Option, the Civil and Structural Option or the Civil and International Development Option. After completion of second year, students with appropriate academic standing may take either the Civil Engineering & Management Option which leads to both an Engineering and an Honors Business Administration degree after three additional years or the Civil Engineering and Law Option which leads to both Engineering and Law degrees after an additional four years. Other five-year concurrent degree programs, such as Civil/Environmental Engineering & Environmental Science, Civil Engineering & Computer Science, and Civil Engineering & EcoSystem Health are also available. Students in all options and concurrent degree programs receive an excellent education in the fundamental principles. Students in the Environmental Engineering Option also receive background in environmental chemistry and microbiology necessary to undertake senior courses that deal with environmental hydraulics design, design to avoid groundwater contaminants (e.g., due to landfills), or air pollution, and waste water treatment. Students in the Civil and Structural Engineering Option will have an additional emphasis on structural engineering, including structural analysis, structural dynamics, design of steel, concrete and wood structures, and snow and wind loading.
