Civil Engineering at UTC
Civil engineering is about community service, development, and improvement. It involves the conception, planning, design, construction, and operation of facilities essential to modern life, ranging from transit systems to offshore structures to space satellites. Civil engineers are problem solvers, meeting the challenges of pollution, traffic congestion, drinking water and energy needs, urban redevelopment, and community planning.
It is the mission of UTC’s civil engineering program to provide students in civil engineering with
- the knowledge and skills required for a wide range of careers and graduate study
- to provide service to the profession in our region and beyond
- to maintain a supportive environment that encourages our students and faculty to achieve
UTC’s civil engineering program produces graduates who, upon entering the work force or advanced studies:
- Have the ability to function as civil engineers
- Agree that UTC was conductive to their achieving
- Work effectively in multidisciplinary teams
- Are progressing toward professional registration
- Participate in professional societies
- Pursue graduate studies
Prior to graduation, each graduate of UTC’s civil engineering program will demonstrate:
- A knowledge of science, mathematics, physics, chemistry and engineering principles that are fundamental to the design and management of infrastructure.
- An ability to understand contemporary, societal, and global issues as it impacts the design and management of infrastructures.
- An ability to use engineering principles and modern engineering tools to identify, analyze, and solve technical problems in civil engineering including the appropriate use of computer technology
- An ability to function effectively in interdisciplinary teams and to communicate effectively through speaking and writing.
- An understanding of professional and ethical responsibilities and a need for a commitment to life-long learning and participation in professional societies
- An ability to plan, conduct, analyze, and interpret and synthesize experimental results
- An ability to design major components or process in four of the major technical specialty areas of civil engineering.
