Would you like to receive a job offer before graduation?

Receive a job offer before graduation? — many of our students do — our placement rate is close to 100 percent. 

Civil engineers are essential to the continued improvement of our society. You'll use wide-ranging, technical applications in the traditional fields — construction, bridge and building design and analysis, highway design and traffic control, water treatment and distribution, environmental engineering, hydraulics, and geotechnics — as well as in the aerospace, automotive, materials and engineering management fields. You'll use applications in conceptual and detail design, field operations, computers and consulting.

Advanced learning and real experiences beyond the classroom.

National honor societies, professional organizations, service clubs, sororities and fraternities deliver possibilities to learn and achieve outside the classroom. We recognize that your talents go beyond the classroom, so we provide real experiences, advanced learning — and fun — beyond the classroom. You'll work with faculty, alumni, government and private business leaders to continue the cycle of education and service in the engineering community.
