Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering

Program Director: Associate Professor Babak Moaveni

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. Of the 120 Semester-hour units (SHUs) or more required for the professional degrees accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, a minimum of 30 SHUs must be completed in college level math and basic science subjects appropriate to the discipline and a minimum of 45 SHUs must be completed in engineering topics, consistent with ABET general and program criteria. The BSCE program meets or exceeds these minimum standards.
