Civil engineering is the third largest and oldest branch of engineering. Major civil engineering projects date back more than 5,000 years. Today, civil engineers plan, design, and supervise the construction of facilities essential to modern life. Projects range from high-rise buildings to mass transit systems, from airports to water treatment plants, from space telescopes to off-shore drilling platforms. Civil engineering students typically specialize in one of these areas: structural engineering, transportation engineering, environmental engineering, water resources engineering, geotechnical engineering, surveying and construction engineering. For more information on Civil Engineering contact the American Society of Civil Engineers (see link at left).

To pursue Civil and/or Environmental Engineering you should work with an  Engineering Faculty Advisor (see below) as soon as possible to develop a plan of study leading to the Associate of Science Degree.  It is especially critical to meet with a faculty advisor if you tested into a math class lower than MATH& 151 or an English class lower than ENGL& 101, or if you haven't had high school chemistry or physics. If you haven't yet taken the Accuplacer test for placement contact the Student Entry Advising Center as soon as possible, but BEFORE contacting the faculty advisor.
