Civil engineering is one of the oldest disciplines of engineering. Civil engineers design, build and maintain our roads, bridges, canals, dams and buildings - and much more. If you're drawn to the opportunity to serve society by creating and renewing the infrastructure on which we all rely, civil engineering at UGA may be for you. 

Program Mission

The University of Georgia Civil Engineering undergraduate program provides students with an education in engineering sciences, basic sciences, liberal arts and engineering design, and prepares them to integrate knowledge for developing new technological solutions for the increasingly complex built environment and infrastructure problems. The graduates of the program will have career opportunities in structural engineering, geotechnical engineering, sustainable infrastructure design, architectural systems, water resources engineering, solid waste management and urban systems.

Program Educational Objectives

The following Program Educational Objectives relate to the knowledge, skills, and behaviors that UGA College of Engineering alumni with degrees in civil engineering should demonstrate as they move through their careers as engineers and as contributing members of society:

  • Be prepared for civil engineering practice and/or continue their education in graduate and professional programs;
  • Demonstrate professionalism, ethics, and the ability to work on multi-disciplinary teams;
  • Be qualified to pursue professional licensure.
