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.

The Civil Engineering program at UMD started in the fall of 2008 with the first graduating class in 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. The Swenson College of Science and Engineering was notified in August of 2013 that the Civil Engineering program was awarded a 6 year accreditation. This accreditation will show up on ABET's accredited program list in October after the update is done.
