Civil engineering is all about sustainably helping people and the natural world. Students may specialize in any of the subfields discussed below. It is the most diverse field of engineering:
Civil (Water Resources) engineers are responsible for engineering the processes of the collection, storage and distribution of the water that you drink and bathe in as well as to provide water for the farms that yield the food that you eat.
Civil (Environmental) engineers are responsible for engineering the facilities and processes used to safely collect, treat, and disperse the wastewater that you produce as clean water as well as the safe collection and handling of solid and hazardous wastes.
Civil (Structural and Construction) engineers design and manage the construction of the buildings and facilities that you live, learn, work and play in.
Civil (Geotechnical) engineers are responsible for engineering the foundations and ground for our public improvement projects.
Civil (Transportation) engineers design the roads and manage the traffic on the roads that we travel on as well as the transit systems, airports and railways that we use. Civil engineers even provide the maps that you use to navigate your surroundings.
Civil Engineers map the natural world and its phenomena (Mapping and Measurements) such as floods, forest cover, climate, and utilize strategies to minimize the effects of building projects on the natural environment (Sustainability).
From the moment that you awaken in the morning until the moment that you fall asleep, you benefit from the work of civil engineers.
The Civil Engineering major program at LMU helps students to develop the technical and people skills needed to design these projects, conduct research and work in a wide variety or professional fields.
Environmental Science is an interdisciplinary field of study that integrates physical and biological sciences, and engineering (including Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Earth Sciences) in the study of the environment, and the solution of environmental problems. The department offers a Master of Science Degree in Environmental Science. The Seaver College of Science and Engineering offers an interdisciplinary undergraduate program and Bachelor of Science in Environmental Science.
