Degree Types: Bachelor of Science (default) or Bachelor of Arts (alternative)

Student Outcomes

  1. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
  2. an ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors
  3. an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
  4. an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts

Civil Engineering Program Educational Objectives

​​Having been formed through Christian, Catholic and Benedictine values as whole persons for the whole of life, within a few of years graduation, our civil engineering graduates will:

  • Have increased responsibility in their professional roles as a result of their ethical integrity,
  • Be innovators of latest technologies and methodologies that enhance their fields,
  • Be life-long learners who seek advanced degrees and/or higher accomplishments in the field, and
  • In the Spirit of Service, and through leadership roles, collaborate with colleagues from multiple disciplines.

Program Requirements

Need a grade of “C-” or better for all courses required of the major, as well as any pre-requisite courses for the major requirements.

Students must also achieve a GPA of 2.5 or higher for all courses required of the major.

Required Courses:

Technical Electives: Need Two

A technical elective is either one of the specified technical electives for the major or, with instructor and adviser permission, students may choose courses from other engineering majors of 300 level or above to satisfy their technical elective course requirements.

Total: 139 Semester Credits

Program length: 4 academic years / 128 weeks
