Civil Engineering

BACHELOR OF SCIENCE (Pending NCFHE Approval)

As cities grow in size, demand for the kind of infrastructure designed by Civil Engineers rises. This means transportation, water supply, wastewater treatment, and flood control. In order to enhance quality of life, these systems must be designed for safety, sustainability, and resilience. 

In addition to availing themselves of numerous opportunities with engineering firms, Civil Engineers can and do land jobs with various government agencies, consulting firms, and construction companies. Civil Engineers often lead or participate in projects revolving around foundation analysis, building and structural inspection, surveying, geomatics, and municipal planning. 

 

Degree Requirements

The BS in Civil Engineering degree is a four-year degree program.

AUM provides a fundamental grounding in all Civil Engineering subdisciplines: construction, environmental, geotechnical, hydraulics, structures, and transportation engineering. The idea is to equip you with the skills to manage the construction or repair of buildings, earth structures, powerhouses, roads, airports, railways, rapid transit facilities, bridges, tunnels, canals, dams, ports and coastal installations, highway and transportation services, water distribution, and sanitation.
