Undergraduate Program

BSCE: Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering

Program Director: Prof. Laurie Baise

The bachelor of science in civil engineering (BSCE) program prepares students for a professional career in civil engineering. Major areas of technical concentration are environmental, geotechnical, structural and water resources engineering. Students completing this program are also well qualified for a professional career in Civil and Environmental Engineering, graduate study in engineering, construction, architecture, business, management, and law. Program objectives are achieved by developing a broad understanding of civil engineering, its relationship to the fundamental engineering sciences, and its interaction with the humanities, arts, and social sciences. The curriculum emphasizes the application of basic science, computing, and mathematics to the particular needs of the engineer.

The BSCE program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET. ABET-EAC criteria require students complete a minimum number of course credits in college-level math and basic science subjects appropriate to the discipline, and a minimum number of course credits in engineering topics. To ensure compliance with these requirements, Tufts' School of Engineering establishes that all ABET-EAC accredited programs contain a minimum of 9.5 course credits in math and basic science subjects, and 14.5 course credits in engineering topics. The BSCE program meets or exceeds these minimum standards.
