The Civil Engineering Department offers a Bachelor of Science degree (BSCE). The Civil Engineering curriculum vertically integrates oral and written communication, contemporary issues, successful teamwork, significant design experience, and the skills needed to engage in life-long learning into general education and engineering courses. The program emphasizes four core tracks in Civil Engineering: (1) structural engineering, (2) geotechnical engineering, (3) transportation systems, and (4) water resources. Sustainability is incorporated throughout the curriculum.

Students may vary the order of required courses depending on their focus area. Each student works with their advisor to develop a plan that focuses in the student's interest areas and prepares them for their chosen career.

Check the example plans (pdfs) on each focus area:


The Civil Engineering program at UMD started in the Fall of 2008 with the first graduating class in the Spring of 2012. The program applied for ABET accreditation immediately after the first graduating class, for retroactive accreditation of the program for all CE graduates.
