You are attracted to elements of society’s infrastructures. You have ideas that could improve airports, roadways, and bridges.
You may have thought about the infrastructure of tomorrow that will support space exploration. But you’re eager to learn more, and you hope to use your skills in this engineering field that demands more and more professionals around the world and beyond.
The Civil Engineering program at Embry-Riddle fosters sophisticated problem-solving and team-building skills to prepare you for a focused career. This program provides you with the foundation necessary to pass the Fundamentals of Engineering exam, further your work experience, and become a Professional Engineer.
Bachelor of Science in Civil EngineeringWhen you study at our Daytona Beach Campus, you get access to excellent facilities and laboratories featuring transportation analysis and drafting software packages. Your designs will be executed and tested in the Materials Lab, Civil Infrastructure Monitoring and Evaluation Lab, Aquaponics Lab, Structures Lab, and more.
The Civil Engineering program at ERAU is small compared to other such programs at larger universities. This provides the immeasurable benefit of personal, familial relationships with faculty uniquely qualified in their fields — all of whom hold Ph.D. and are Professional Engineers. Research opportunities are open to undergraduate students at ERAU, a clear advantage over larger universities.
Pursuing your Civil Engineering degree at ERAU means you’ll benefit from ERAU’s high-technology atmosphere, offering unique hands-on opportunities whether you pursue a civil engineering career in transportation, aerospace, or elsewhere. A Civil Engineer can work in just about any populated part of the planet. You are not limited to following an industry. Every municipality employs Civil Engineers, for example.
You can participate in the annual American Society of Civil Engineers’ steel bridge contest, complete a senior design project, and explore opportunities in research.
You may also opt to join the ERAU student chapter of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), part of the 30-member Southeast Region of ASCE.
The Civil Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, so you can be assured the curriculum aligns with real-world industry demands.
