Civil Engineering is described as the art of substainably harnessing the natural environment to meet human needs. The success of this endeavor is evident all around us. The arid plain which greeted the early settlers in Southern California has been transformed into a thriving metropolis largely by the application of civil engineering.

The educational mission of the Civil Engineering program is to provide students with an multidisciplinary curriculum that is fundamental, yet broad and flexible, to produce graduates who are well-grounded in mathematical, scientific, and technical knowledge; have the ability to analyze, evaluate, and design civil engineering systems; have the ability to communicate effectively; have had meaningful opportunities for undergraduate research; and who have acquired an understanding and appreciation for global and societal issues and are thus prepared for a career path toward leadership in industry, government, and academia.


Student must study 136 Credit Hour. Some courses are compulsory to meet the requirement of your degree and are labelled as core course. Others are optional and are labelled as elective.
