Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering

Department Head: Professor Dennis D. Truax
Office: 235 Walker Engineering Building

Civil and Environmental Engineers plans, designs, and supervises construction of almost every facility essential to modern life. Roads, bridges, buildings, water supply and waste disposal systems, transit systems, airfields, dams and irrigation projects are examples of the creative efforts of Civil and Environmental Engineers. The field of Civil and Environmental Engineering offers limitless employment opportunities that range from high-tech computer-aided design to hands-on field engineering. Civil and Environmental Engineers find rewarding careers in government, military, industry or private practice to meet the challenges of pollution control, energy, transportation, housing and other problems that face modern society.

The mission of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering is to proactively utilize teaching, research, and service to educate baccalaureate, masters, and doctoral students so they can become competent, dynamic, and ethical engineers of the future.  To complement the classroom experience, students are encouraged to reinforce instruction by participating in cooperative education programs, assisting faculty with research, or becoming involved in professional societies.  Students are expected to develop an appreciation for life-long learning and pursue professional engineering licensure.  The ultimate goal is to prepare students to be future leaders who will positively impact their profession and society.

Furthermore, students should become prepared to combine research and classroom experiences to solve complex interdisciplinary problems.  The overall goal of the program is to challenge students to study and innovatively solve the global sustainability challenges that they encounter. Finally, faculty, students, and staff will be engaged in professional organizations, campus committees, consultancy, student organizations, and continuing education. Through these service activities, the department will be a reliable professional resource for the University, alumni, and society.

The educational objectives of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering are to enable graduates to achieve career and professional accomplishments that include:

  1. Demonstrate a broad knowledge of principles and fundamentals of civil engineering and their application, through their successfully practice as professional civil engineers, their pursuit of graduate or professional degrees, or their engagement in other professional careers that involve the application of the engineering method.
  2. Achieve success in the multidisciplinary environment of the 21st century, and demonstrate their ability to adapt to emerging and evolving technologies, social conditions, professional standards, and career opportunities, by attaining leadership, managerial, administrative, supervisory, or other positions of responsibility within their organization.
  3. Demonstrate an understanding and appreciation of the ethical, societal and professional responsibilities of a civil engineer, through professional registration and active membership in professional organizations.
  4. Demonstrate an appreciation for lifelong learning and for the value of continuing professional development in maintaining their professional competence, through participation in graduate and continuing education activities.
     

The department offers a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering. For those interested in Environmental Engineering, the department offers an Environmental Engineering concentration within the Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering. The civil engineering degree program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
