Civil Engineering, Bachelor of Science

The Department of Civil Engineering (CIVE) offers a complete undergraduate program to students on the Lincoln and Omaha campuses of the University of Nebraska (www.engineering.unl.edu/civil/). Curriculum requirements are nearly identical on both campuses. The goal is to prepare students for entry into the civil engineering profession immediately after graduation or to pursue graduate-level work. The program educational objectives of the University of Nebraska civil engineering undergraduate program are to prepare our graduates to:

  • apply their solid foundation in civil engineering toward the practice and to obtain an advanced-degree education toward a broad range of career choices;
  • perform technical analysis or design of a complex system, component or process as acting representative of governmental agencies, private consulting engineering firms, research organizations or industry;
  • explain engineering concepts accurately and effectively to inform technical and non-technical audiences using appropriate verbal, written, virtual and graphical means;
  • apply basic project management and business concepts and processes;
  • engage in lifelong learning to foster technical growth, ethical conduct, and the practice of professional communication, teamwork and leadership skills; and
  • obtain licensure in a profession, such as civil engineering, after the requisite number of years of practice.

As a professional discipline, civil engineering is closely related to the total human environment. In all professional endeavors, the civil engineer must consider ecological effects as well as the social, economic, and political needs of people.

The civil engineer designs systems to control and manage our water resources to provide electric power, agricultural irrigation, flood control, recreation, water supplies and wastewater treatment systems for our urban and industrial needs. The civil engineer plans, designs, and constructs our transportation systems including highways, railroads, waterways, and airports to connect rural, urban, and industrial areas. The civil engineer also designs and constructs housing and facilities for recreational, industrial, and commercial complexes, which comprise the urban environment.

It is the responsibility of civil engineering to minimize air, water, and land pollution and protect the environment. Instructional emphasis is placed on fundamental engineering principles derived from mathematics, chemistry, physics, and engineering science. These subjects provide a sound background for the subsequent introductory courses in environmental, geotechnical, structural, transportation, and water resources engineering.

Students are introduced to design concepts in the freshman year. Design is incorporated throughout the curriculum which culminates in CIVE 489, Senior Design Project. Instructional laboratories in environmental engineering, hydraulics, geotechnical engineering, structures, and surveying provide each student with an opportunity to learn, through individual participation, the operation of the testing equipment used to establish engineering design criteria and to monitor and model engineering facilities such as water and wastewater treatment plants, highway systems, river control systems, and structural systems.

Professional Admission to Civil Engineering

Students must apply for Professional Admission to the Civil Engineering Degree Program once they have completed 43 credits toward the degree.  Once students have been professionally admitted, they are allowed to take 400-level courses to complete their degree.  Department-specific Professional Admission requirements are:

  • if the cumulative GPA is 2.7 or above, a grade of C or better must be earned in PHYS 2110, MENG 2230, MENG 3730, and MENG 3250
  • if the cumulative GPA is below 2.7 a grade of C or better must be earned in all math, science, and engineering courses leading to the degree

To be considered for Professional Admission, the following College of Engineering general criteria must be met:

  • completion of at least 12 credits (one semester) after admission to the College of Engineering,
  • cumulative grade point average of 2.4 or greater, and
  • no more than two declined admission requests to other engineering majors.
