Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering
The Civil Engineering program at King’s is designed to provide the basic undergraduate education required for private and public service in civil engineering, or to continue formal education in the engineering field. The Civil Engineering curriculum emphasizes the fundamental principles of civil engineering and design techniques.
The program’s flexible design makes it possible for students to develop a concentration in several areas, including construction, environmental, general, and structural engineering. Study through these areas may lead to employment opportunities as structural designers for buildings and infrastructures, project engineers for construction projects, or representatives for owners or contractors. Employers include consulting firms, contractors, industry, and governments.
Civil engineers are vital to the development and maintenance of critical infrastructure projects. Civil and other related engineers perform duties in planning, designing, and supervising heavy construction and maintenance of structures and facilities, in addition to systems for transportation, information, water, and other resources.
Civil engineers engage in a broad range of infrastructure-related enterprises, including the design and improvement of highways and railroads, airports, bridges and tunnels, dams, harbors, and channels, to name just a few. Civil engineers also serve as professional technical consultants in government, education, and law. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, demand for civil engineers will continue to grow by more than 8 percent annually.
King's College is in the process of acquiring accreditation for this program from the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.
