Civil Engineering

LMU's Civil Engineering program helps students understand how to plan, analyze, design, and oversee the construction of a wide variety of public and private engineering projects. Students learn how to apply scientific principles to evaluate the technical, economic and environmental feasibility of vital projects ranging from roads and highways to airports, mass transit systems to treatment plants, and drainage/flood control systems. Students in the undergraduate program take courses in structural, water resources, environmental, geotechnical, sustainability and general civil engineering, and they may focus in one or more of these tracks. Graduate students can choose from two specialized tracks: environmental engineering or water resources.
