Engineering Science Degree, Civil Engineering Area of Concentration
Civil engineers are concerned with the design of large and complex structures—dams, bridges, transportation systems, and the like. They also deal with hydraulics, pollution control, and surveying. Subdivisions within the field include: construction management, environmental engineering, geotechnical engineering, structural engineering, transportation engineering, and water resources engineering.
Upon completion of this program a student will be able to:
- Identify, formulate, and solve basic physics and engineering problems in structural mechanics.
- Analyze and design simple structures using analytical and numerical methods in the area of civil engineering.
- Use appropriate computer programming and applications software in civil engineering.
Meet with your academic advisor regularly to make sure you are on track to graduate and/or transfer. The program advising guide outlines the degree requirements and is meant to supplement the advising process.
This track will prepare students to transfer to a four-year university with a major in civil engineering. See all engineering transfer agreements.
Career possibilities include wind energy project manager, transportation engineer , civil engineer, construction manager, architectural and engineering manager. Some may require a bachelor's degree.

A suggested Civil Engineering course sequence for full-time students follows.
All students should review the advising guide and consult an advisor. Most courses have either assessment levels that must be met or prerequisites (courses that must be taken first). Part-time students and those who need to meet assessment levels or take prerequisite courses will take longer to complete a degree. An advisor will help make sure you are taking your courses in the right order.
All degree-seeking students must take a central group of General Education courses in English, mathematics, arts, behavioral and social sciences, humanities, and science. These courses are included in the suggested course sequence below.
