Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering
The Department of Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering offers a broad-based program in civil engineering, which covers mechanics and structures, soils, surveying, transportation, water supply, sanitary engineering, and environmental engineering. Computer applications are emphasized in all areas.
The program is based on a strong foundation of mathematics, physical sciences, humanities, and social sciences and is supported by a series of basic courses from other engineering disciplines. The primary objective of the program is to prepare students for entry into the civil engineering profession as a design engineer. Electives in the academic program may be selected from courses in structural engineering, environmental engineering, geotechnical engineering, and transportation engineering. These courses allow students to emphasize a particular area in their undergraduate academic program. Judicious selection of these electives may be used as additional preparation for a specific design career or for entry into a specialized civil engineering or environmental engineering graduate program.
New Graduate Program in Construction Management
The Department of Civil, Construction and Environmental Engineering is pleased to announce the Construction Management track of study for the new Master of Engineering degree offered by the UAB School of Engineering will commence in January 2008.
