Civil Engineering and Construction

Civil and construction engineers design, build and maintain, transportation systems, water supplies and other infrastructure needs to keep people safe at work, play and travel. Bradley’s undergraduate and graduate CEC degrees prepare you to be a thorough problem-solver who can adapt technical knowledge to any situation. Civil engineering introduces infrastructure engineering principles used to shape towns and cities into sustainable and thriving communities. Construction blends engineering, business and management knowledge.

The programs value technical knowledge, leadership and research. You’re introduced to state-of-the-art labs as a first-year student, and you continue working on projects in preparation for your senior capstone design experience. Leadership development opportunities are available through management courses and student organizations within the college. Additionally, you can tailor your degree to career interests by taking courses in internationalization, sustainability or infrastructure. You also can continue your education with a Master of Science in civil engineering (MSCE), which offers tracks in construction management, structural engineering, environmental water resource engineering, or transportation engineering. We offer a traditional MSCE program and accelerated 4+1 programs for our undergraduate students interested in pursing graduate degrees.
