The Engineer’s Degree in Civil Engineering (E.D.C.E) Program focuses on five of the core competency areas of civil engineering; environmental, geotechnical, structural, and water resources engineering, building construction. This program employs a team-based interdisciplinary learning philosophy. This approach provides students with the critical thinking skills required for effective and innovative engineering practice. Students will be prepared to combine social awareness and an interest in humanity with the technical expertise of the engineering profession as they plan, design, and construct a built environment. E.D.C.E students complete core courses common to all engineering majors as well as specialized courses in civil engineering.
