Bachelor of Engineering in Civil & Construction Engineering


E-Learning Portal

Course Overview

Civil engineering is the design, construction, and maintenance of public works, including roads, bridges, harbors, etc. At Oregon State University our programs in civil engineering prepare students to become working professional civil engineering and academic researchers who study civil engineering problems. The objective of the Civil Engineering Program is to prepare graduates to enter and be successful in the civil engineering profession. Graduates are expected to become licensed professional engineers, and to reach responsible positions in a wide range of professional settings including consulting firms, industry or government. As well, this program will prepare students to begin and successfully complete graduate studies in engineering and/or post- baccalaureate education in a professional degree program. The Civil Engineering Program provides breadth in core sub-disciplines and depth in at least one area of specialization. Download Course Catalog.
