OVERVIEW

Civil engineering is a profession that applies the basic principles of science, in conjunction with mathematical and computational tools, to solve problems associated with developing and sustaining civilized life on our planet. Civil engineering is one of the broader of the engineering disciplines both in terms of the range of problems that fall within its purview and in the range of knowledge required to solve those problems. Civil engineering works are generally one-of-a-kind projects, they are often grand in scale, and they usually require cooperation among professionals of many different disciplines. The completion of a civil engineering project involves the solution of technical problems in which uncertainty of information and myriad nontechnical factors often play a significant role. Some of the most common examples of civil engineering works include bridges, buildings, dams, airports, highways, tunnels, and water distribution systems. Civil engineers are concerned with flood control, landslides, air and water pollution, and the design of facilities to withstand earthquakes and other natural hazards. The civil engineering program comprises seven main disciplines: construction engineering and management, construction materials engineering, environmental engineering, geotechnical engineering, environmental hydrology and hydraulics, structural engineering, and transportation engineering. Although each discipline has its own special body of knowledge and engineering tools, they all rely on the same fundamental core principles. Civil engineering projects often draw expertise from many of these disciplines.

PROGRAM EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES
The program educational objectives for the civil engineering program reflect the mission of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering and the importance placed on successful professional practice, the ability to pursue advanced degrees, the assumption of professional and societal leadership roles, and a commitment to lifelong learning. University of Illinois Civil and Environmental Engineering graduates will:
  • Successfully enter the civil engineering profession as practicing engineers and consultants with prominent companies and organizations in diverse areas that include structural, transportation, geotechnical, materials, environmental, and hydrologic engineering; construction management; or other related or emerging fields.
  • Pursue graduate education and research at major research universities in civil and environmental engineering, and related fields.
  • Pursue professional licensure.
  • Advance to leadership positions in the profession.
  • Engage in continued learning through professional development.
  • Participate in and contribute to professional societies and community services.


STUDENT OUTCOMES
The Civil and Environmental Engineering Department expects our graduates to have:
  • An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering.
