Civil Engineering

Civil Engineering

Civil engineers are entrusted by society to create a sustainable future and enhance the world’s quality of life as planners, designers, constructors, and operators of society’s economic and social engine – the built environment; as stewards of the natural environment and its resources; as innovators and integrators of ideas and technology across the public, private, and academic sectors; as managers of risk and uncertainty caused by natural events, accidents, and other threats; and as leaders in discussions and decisions shaping public environmental and infrastructure policy.

The civil engineering curriculum is designed to prepare graduates to enter this exciting and dynamic profession; pursue advanced studies and become a licensed professional civil engineer. Civil engineers have many career opportunities in both the private and public sectors of society depending on their interests.

Accreditation

The Civil Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET. Learn more about Civil Engineering at Wentworth.
