Civil engineering and architecture are two important disciplines that deal with the process of creating the built environment to satisfy societal needs. Both professions have critical functions that are essential in the development of society in terms of planning cities and designing more resilient infrastructure and rely on one-another to accomplish it. The combination of these two professions creates great synergy as architects focus more on the functional and human aspects of development, while civil engineers concentrate on the structural elements of the design, ensuring durable structures that perform under normal and extreme loads.
Students successfully completing the program receive a rigorous engineering training education, enabling a high level of engineering knowledge as well as exposure to a broad range of architectural topics and design experiences.
Students also have the opportunity to undertake a co-op experience consistent with the policies and opportunities offered within the College of Engineering.
