Civil Engineering

Emphasis areas at all levels in construction engineering, environmental engineering, water resources engineering, geotechnical engineering, structural engineering, materials engineering and transportation engineering.

Civil engineers plan, design, and supervise construction of many essential facilities and structures such as bridges, dams, interstate highways, and buildings. Service to the community, its development and improvement are fundamental aspects of a civil engineering career. Civil engineers are problem solvers applying the latest in high-tech equipment and sophisticated procedures to address challenges concerning our environment and infrastructure.

Included in the study of civil engineering are courses in environmental engineering that are directly related to the solution of hazardous waste and pollution problems, to providing potable and economical water supply systems, and to maintaining a safe environment. Water resources engineering is related to hydraulic and hydrologic engineering, flood control, rainfall, and runoff prediction and the transport in flows. Studies in geotechnical engineering address the bearing capacities of soils, settlement of foundations, and the design of both deep and shallow foundations. Courses in structural analysis and design are directed toward providing reliable and economical structures such as bridges, buildings, port facilities, and intricate lock and dam facilities. The principles involved in this sequence of courses are also applicable to the design of automobiles, aircraft, spacecraft, and future space structures. Transportation engineering involves the movement of people and cargo from place to place, the design of airports and highways, and traffic studies to maintain efficient flows. Courses in construction engineering include studies in construction techniques, cost estimating, quality control/quality assurance, and contract administration. Materials engineering involves the production, quality control, use, and property analysis of construction materials such as asphalt, concrete, aggregate, wood, masonry, and steel.

Civil engineering is a broad field of endeavor. Because of this breadth, courses are required in each of the above areas. Although you, as a civil engineer, may specialize within a given area, by the very nature of the profession you will be required to interact with specialists in the other areas. You also may find that you will work with engineers in other disciplines such as mechanical, electrical, or geological engineering in the planning, design, and construction of complex facilities.

Civil engineers also must be effective in communicating with the public. You may be expected to work with property owners, concerned citizens, city officials, attorneys, and even medical doctors for concerns related to public health measures.

The results of your work as a civil engineer will be seen everywhere. Projects in which you will become involved must be economical, provide an adequate factor of safety for the particular use, and provide a reasonable life expectancy. To do this adequately and within a reasonable time frame, you will find that, with the exception of your engineering training, the computer is one of the most important and valuable tools you will use to produce a proper design or to complete a specific project. You may expect that your courses taken in civil engineering will require the use of computer hardware and software related to the different areas of study.

Civil Engineering
Bachelor of Science

Entering freshmen desiring to study Civil Engineering will be admitted to the Freshman Engineering Program. They will, however, be permitted, if they wish, to state a Civil Engineering preference, which will be used as a consideration for available freshman departmental scholarships. The focus of the Freshman Engineering program is on enhanced advising and career counseling, with the goal of providing to the student the information necessary to make an informed decision regarding the choice of a major.

For the Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering a minimum of 129 credit hours is required. These requirements are in addition to credit received for algebra, trigonometry, and basic ROTC courses. An average of at least two grade points per credit hour must be attained. An average of at least two grade points per credit hour must also be attained in all courses taken in Civil Engineering.

Each student's program of study must contain a minimum of 21 credit hours of course work in general education and must be chosen according to the following rules:

  1. All students are required to take one American history course, one economics course, one humanities course, and ENGLISH 1120 . The history course is to be selected from HISTORY 1200 , HISTORY 1300 , HISTORY 1310 , or POL SCI 1200 . The economics course may be either ECON 1100 or ECON 1200 . The humanities course must be selected from the approved lists for art, English, foreign languages, music, philosophy, speech and media studies, or theater.
  2. Depth requirement. Three credit hours must be taken in humanities or social sciences at the 2000-level or above and must be selected from the approved list. This course must have as a prerequisite one of the humanities or social sciences courses already taken. Foreign language courses numbered 1180 will be considered to satisfy this requirement. Students may receive humanities credit for foreign language courses in their native tongue only if the course is at the 4000-level. All courses taken to satisfy the depth requirement must be taken after graduating from high school.
  3. The remaining two courses are to be chosen from the list of approved humanities/social sciences courses and may include one communications course in addition to ENGLISH 1120 .
  4. Any specific departmental requirements in the general studies area must be satisfied.
  5. Special topics and special problems and honors seminars are allowed only by petition to and approval by the student's department chair.

The Civil Engineering program at Missouri S&T is characterized by its focus on the scientific basics of engineering and its innovative application; indeed, the underlying theme of this educational program is the application of the scientific basics to engineering practice through attention to problems and needs of the public. The necessary interrelations among the various topics, the engineering disciplines, and the other professions as they naturally come together in the solution of real world problems are emphasized as research, analysis, synthesis, and design are presented and discussed through classroom and laboratory instruction.
