Four Year Plan

Civil engineers apply fundamental mathematics and physics to develop solutions to problems that affect the daily lives of citizens. They are multi-skilled and are able to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret complex data. Engineers can design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints. They can function on multidisciplinary teams and have a solid understanding of professional and ethical responsibility.
