Chairperson: Christopher M. Foley, Ph.D., P.E.
Department of Civil, Construction and Environmental Engineering website

The Department of Civil, Construction and Environmental Engineering offers a curriculum that leads to a bachelor of science degree in civil engineering or a bachelor of science degree in construction engineering and management. Students that pursue a bachelor of science degree in civil engineering may select from the civil engineering or environmental engineering majors. Students who pursue a bachelor of science degree in construction engineering and management will select the construction engineering and management major.

Mission

The mission of the Department of Civil, Construction and Environmental Engineering is to educate students in the Catholic, Jesuit tradition. These students will be competent in their technical fields, appreciate the moral and ethical impact of their professional work and continue their professional development throughout their careers. The students and faculty of the department will advance the state of technical and scientific knowledge through research and provide service to civic and professional communities.

Program Educational Objectives - Civil engineering degree

To carry out the mission of the College of Engineering and the mission of the department described previously, the Department of Civil, Construction and Environmental Engineering has established the following Educational Objectives for its undergraduate Civil Engineering Degree program in Civil and Environmental Engineering Majors.

  • successfully enter the civil engineering profession as practicing engineers in diverse civil engineering related areas that include structural engineering and structural mechanics, transportation engineering and materials, environmental engineering, construction engineering; or other related and/or emerging fields.
  • engage in life-long learning through: pursuit of graduate education and research in structural engineering and structural mechanics, construction engineering, transportation engineering and materials, environmental engineering; and/or professional development.
  • pursue professional licensure and certification.
  • serve and become leaders in their professional and civic communities.

Civil engineering is the art and science used in the construction of facilities which people need in their environment — land, water and air. Airports, buildings, bridges, dams, harbors, highways, irrigation systems, transportation systems, sewerage and water supply systems are examples of the types of facilities which are the responsibility of the civil engineer.

Since the beginning of civilization, people have been building with the use of engineering principles. Modern society depends on this contribution from the civil engineer, whose education is systematically developed from a strong background in mathematics and the physical and engineering sciences. The civil engineer must relate to society and fellow men and women and be aware of how the engineering principles can be applied for the benefit of others.

Civil engineers are also stewards of the land, its resources and environment. Many civil engineers are involved in activities such as watershed and environmental planning, sustainable resource development and environmental protection.

The civil engineering degree program develops the analysis and design capabilities of the student in the study of structures and systems. The application of computers and pertinent software is used throughout the major. A broad educational program can be selected or some specialization is possible through advised elective course selection.  The environmental engineering major within the civil engineering degree provides the student with a fundamental background in civil engineering and specialization in the field of environmental engineering.

The construction engineering and management degree provides the student with general engineering skills and the management and finance background for entry into the field of construction engineering.

The curriculum provides the graduate with the necessary education to begin a professional career without further formal education, while also affording those students who enter graduate studies the opportunity to prepare more adequately in their field of specialization.

Areas of Study

The breadth of courses offered is well-suited to allow specialization in one of the major divisions of this branch of engineering. However, it is not necessary to make a commitment to only one area of concentration while in the undergraduate college. The curriculum at Marquette permits students to prepare themselves in civil engineering and construction engineering and management by completing the courses which provide the necessary fundamentals and the opportunity to select elective courses to acquire additional depth in one or more of the areas of specialization. All of the electives which the department offers are open to students with the required prerequisites. Selection of the courses for a general program requires careful planning between the student and an academic adviser. Students in the civil engineering and construction engineering and management degree programs have the option to select technical elective courses in the following areas.

General Civil Engineering (CE)

The diverse needs of people and society for many types of constructed facilities give a broad range to civil engineering and construction engineering and management practice. The following listing of courses are considered general civil engineering technical electives that cross boundaries of the civil, construction and environmental engineering professions.

Students wishing to earn a non-engineering minor should follow the guidelines listed in the Non-Engineering Minors section of the College of Engineering bulletin.

Five-Year B.S./M.S. Program

The department offers a five-year combined B.S./M.S. program which is available to outstanding undergraduate students. This program enables students to earn both their bachelor of science and master of science degrees in civil engineering or construction engineering and management in just five years (or six with completion of a co-op). Students currently enrolled in the undergraduate program in civil, construction and environmental engineering at Marquette University (with a GPA of 3.500 or above) may apply for admission to the five-year program during their junior year. Students must submit an application to the Graduate School, indicate their interest in the five-year program, and meet all other admission criteria as stated in the Application Requirements section of the Graduate Bulletin.

In addition to completing their undergraduate degree requirements, students will take master’s level courses during their senior year. (Note that no course is permitted to satisfy both the undergraduate and graduate degree requirements in the Five-year B.S./M.S. Program of the Department of Civil, Construction and Environmental Engineering.) The remaining master’s level course work is taken during the student’s fifth year. Students are strongly encouraged to pursue Plan A (thesis option), in which case work on the thesis research should begin during the summer between the junior and senior years. Students will continue to gain research experience during the summer between senior and fifth years, continuing throughout the fifth year and culminating in preparation of a written thesis and defense. Combined B.S./M.S. programs following Plan B (course work option) may also be designed for completion in five years. See the Graduate Bulletin for further details.
