Department of Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering

Chair: Fouad H. Fouad
The Department of Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering offers a broad-based program in civil engineering, which covers mechanics and structures, soils, surveying, transportation, water resources, environmental engineering, and construction engineering management. Computer applications are emphasized in all areas. The program is based on a strong foundation of mathematics, physical sciences, humanities, and social sciences and is supported by a series of basic courses from other engineering disciplines. The primary objective of the program is to prepare students for entry into the civil engineering profession as a design engineer. The Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET, http://www.abet.org

Electives in the academic program may be selected from courses in structural engineering, construction engineering management, environmental engineering, geotechnical engineering, and transportation engineering. These courses allow students to emphasize a particular area in their undergraduate academic program. Judicious selection of these electives may be used as additional preparation for a specific design career or for entry into a specialized civil engineering certificate or engineering graduate program.

Qualified, motivated undergraduate students may also participate in the Departmental Honors Program.

Vision

To become a department of top choice for civil engineering students, faculty and industry partners wanting/aspiring to a real world experience in a metropolitan setting.

Mission

Our mission is to advance civil engineering knowledge through innovative, rigorous and practice-based education, research and outreach to better serve our students, community and society at large.

Educational Objectives

The Civil, Construction and Environmental Engineering Department has developed the following educational objectives for graduates of the Civil Engineering program. Three to six years after graduation, graduates who choose to practice in the Civil Engineering field should:

  • Achieve a level of technical competency that allows them to advance in engineering practice and/or research.
  • Pursue lifelong learning, such as graduate study and other professional education, and professional licensure.
  • Engage in service to the profession through involvement in professional societies, community activities, and educational outreach.

Experiential Learning

The Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering Department strongly encourages students to participate in experiential learning opportunities; such as, industry co-ops, engineering internships, and research with department faculty. These programs greatly enhance a student's education and provide the real-world experience employers look for after graduation. The School of Engineering has a dedicated staff member to assist students in finding and applying to these programs and the Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering Department will work with students to tailor programs of study that will allow them to participate in these programs while completing their degrees in a timely manner.
