These are exciting times to study civil and environmental engineering. As our Nation's infrastructure is eroding, civil engineers are being called to address the grand challenges of restoring, protecting, and improving our Nation's infrastructure with a keen eye on sustainable, green design. At Howard University, faculty and students are involved in interdisciplinary research involving collaborations with departments both within Howard and external to Howard, and have made distinct inroads in research and education within our field
Three to five years after graduating from our civil engineering program, successful graduates will:
The program offers instruction and research opportunities in environmental, geotechnical, structural, transportation, and water resources engineering and has adopted the student outcomes established by ABET requirements in Criterion 3. Achieving these outcomes establishes the foundation for achieving the program educational objectives. The civil engineering undergraduate program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
To meet the requirements for graduation, a student must successfully complete the required 120 credits of course work with a minimum overall cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 and a minimum GPA of 2.0 in civil and environmental engineering courses.
