Civil Engineering (Arizona State University)
Students who wish to receive a Bachelor of Science in Engineering from Arizona State University’s Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering must complete at least 120 credit hours, which typically takes four years. Participants in the program can choose from civil engineering by itself or with an environmental engineering concentration or a sustainable engineering concentration. Those who decide to go without a concentration are given more freedom when choosing their design and technical elective courses, such as pavement analysis and design, urban water system design, transportation systems planning and hydrology.
In addition to engineering classes, students in the civil engineering program take physics, calculus, biology and many more. Courses focus on teaching participants to come up with sustainable and environmentally friendly ideas. Classes often work in laboratories and encourage students to work together to come up with innovative ideas. They are pushed to research and develop solutions to problems that are economically, socially and ecologically sustainable.
ASU's academic programs are spread across campuses in the Phoenix Metropolitan Area; however, unlike most multi-campus institutions, the campuses of ASU are all individually different- each has its own distinct function to fulfill in line with the university's mission.Read more About this school
