Civil engineers conceive, plan, design, construct, operate, and maintain the civil infrastructure systems that meet societal needs in our practical world.
  • The Auburn University Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering seeks to prepare graduates who value honesty, hard work, and sustainability, and—after the first few years of their professional career—have
  • Functioned as efficient, reliable team members in the evaluation, planning and design, construction, or operation and maintenance of civil infrastructure systems,
  • Demonstrated their belief in lifelong education by expanding their body of knowledge, maturing professionally, and progressing toward licensure as professional engineers,
  • Assumed leadership roles in their workplace by exercising initiative and responsible stewardship, and
  • Employed the human touch in engaged involvement in their professions and communities.
  • The first two years of the Bachelor of Civil Engineering degree program focus on basic principles, which are then applied in the third and fourth years in required and elective civil engineering coursework. Engineering science and design are integrated throughout, with a gradual shift in emphasis from introduction of fundamental concepts, principles, and tools to analysis and design in increasingly realistic situations. The curriculum culminates in the capstone senior design experience. Bachelor of Civil Engineering graduates are prepared for a variety of entry-level civil engineering positions or graduate/professional schools.
