Why study civil engineering at CBU?
Specialize in seven areas
CBU’s civil engineering degree gives students a base-level competency in seven specialized
areas of civil engineering, and they can take two elective courses chosen from among
these seven areas to more precisely tailor their learning experience. The seven specializations
students learn include: environmental, water resources, structures, soil mechanics
and foundation, transportation, construction management and surveying.
Attend conferences and field trips
Students attend PSWC each year, competing in civil engineering challenges, such as
creating a steel bridge or creating clean drinking water in a natural disaster scenario.
The conference is a great opportunity to practice skills, play sports, and network
with students from several other universities and colleges. Students also have the
opportunity to go on field trips or take technical tours. For example, students recently
visited the Wilshire Grand Center in downtown LA, which is a 11,000-foot skyscraper.
