From the construction of a new park to the design of the city’s much-needed bridge, civil engineers know how to make it happen. Working out solutions to problems, and making recommendations along the way. In this ABET-accredited program, you’ll get hands on with the latest technology, hone your critical thinking skills, and take away the technical know-how to craft highways, structures, hydraulic systems, and development sites.
At Penn College, we believe your educational experience should go beyond specialized skills. Real-world ready means taking a broader approach that builds communication skills, inspires collaboration, and encourages exploration of arts, history, and science.
Specialization requires in-depth knowledge and high-level proficiency. Students learn and apply major-specific concepts, skills, and methods.
Perspectives are points of view, offering a variety of ways of understanding, interacting, and influencing the world. Students identify, explain, and utilize the approaches used by academics and professionals to study, analyze, or understand problems, and offer solutions.
Foundations are the practical, intellectual, and social skills: communication, collaboration, critical and ethical thinking, quantitative thinking, and technological literacy that are crucial to every student at every stage of education and at every stage of life.
Meet instructor Drew Potts, a handful of alumni working in the field, and a current civil engineering student, for a diverse look at this dynamic career field.
