Civil engineers plan, design and construct our nation’s physical infrastructure, taking leadership roles in the responsible development and protection of our natural resources. Civil engineering encompasses several distinct disciplinary themes such as architectural engineering, construction engineering, environmental engineering, structural engineering and water resources engineering, and at Clarkson, we give our students opportunities to be successful in all of these areas.
Building your future is something that must be earned, and in Clarkson's civil engineering undergraduate bachelor's degree program, you do just that. You gain experience working on projects and research that influences the future. In the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE), courses in the civil engineering major are taught in a project-based and challenge-based manner. Not everyone can become a civil engineer. It takes focus and perseverance to develop the critical skills and knowledge for the job. Clarkson is here to transform you into the person with such skills.
