Careers: Civil Engineering Provides a Wide Range of Career Possibilities for You.Many of our students receive job offers before graduation. In fact, our placement rate for graduates is at or near 100 percent. In addition, our students are highly recruited by the most prestigious and respected graduate engineering and law schools in the nation including Cornell University, Georgia Institute of Technology, Purdue University, Texas A&M, Rice University, University of Illinois, University of Michigan, University of Notre Dame and University of Texas at Austin.
Civil engineers, the leading users of high technology in wide-ranging applications in the public and the private sectors, are essential to the continued improvement of society. They enter traditional fields such as construction, bridge and building design and analysis, highway design and traffic control, water treatment and distribution, environmental engineering, hydraulics, and geotechnics; however, their broad education also prepares them for materials engineering, engineering management as well as the aerospace and automotive industries. Civil engineering has applications in conceptual and detail design, field operations, computers, and consulting.
Many of our graduates benefit from employment opportunities available through the School's network of alumni and business partners, including Miller-Valentine, Shook, Turner Construction and others.
OPPORTUNITIES: BECOME THE COMPLETE, PROFESSIONAL ENGINEER.National honor societies, professional organizations, service clubs, sororities and fraternities, the School of Engineering provides students with opportunities to learn and achieve outside the classroom. We recognize our students' talents and provide opportunities and activities for real experience and advanced learning — and fun. We work closely with alumni and private business leaders to supply ongoing opportunities and to continue the cycle of education and service in the engineering community.
Faculty and StaffOur faculty members have analyzed urban transportation planning, the seismic response of precast concrete structures, the bioremediation of waste gases and much more. In and out of the classroom, they are there for you! Contact us with questions about our research or areas of expertise.
