- Pursue leadership positions and advanced responsibilities in their profession and/or community.
- Become a licensed professional engineer, mindful of the safety, health, and welfare of the public.
- Further their education through professional development and/or post-graduate studies.
- Senior students work together as a design team in a full academic year course incorporating multiple civil engineering disciplines in a comprehensive design project.
- Students work closely with engineers from design firms and government agencies, and with faculty and students from other engineering courses in the senior design project.
- Students take the Fundamentals of Engineering exam in their senior year - the first step towards professional registration.
- The flexible curriculum allows the students to have either a diverse or focused civil engineering study.
- The faculty maintains ties to industry, keeping current with new technologies, design methodologies, and the world of civil engineering practice - a valuable resource for students.
