O que eu aprenderei?

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering offers a four-year program leading to the Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Civil Engineering degree.

A B.S. in civil engineering will prepare you to make your mark on the modern world—and the buildings, systems, and infrastructure that make it up. You’ll build a strong foundation of knowledge in science, mathematics, engineering, and mechanics: the disciplines that are essential to make modern life work. Every time you enter a building, drive on a road, take mass transit, or even fill a glass of water from the tap, you’re experiencing the results of a civil engineer’s work—and the world is always looking for more bright minds to master that meaningful work.

The Bachelor of Science in civil engineering program at UNO offers five distinct areas of specialization: environmental engineering, geotechnical engineering, structural engineering, surveying, and water resources. No matter which area you choose, you’ll be prepared to make a real, visible contribution to society with your skills in civil engineering, whether you pursue a graduate degree or launch your career right away.

About the Degree

The Bachelor of Science degree in civil engineering from UNO is an ABET-accredited, 127-credit-hour program that requires 39 general education credits, 40 general engineering credits, and 48 civil engineering–specific credits.

In addition, the degree encompasses five areas of specialization, so you can choose the path that best matches your interests and career goals.

Environmental Engineering

When you choose to focus your B.S. in civil engineering on environmental engineering, you’ll explore and contribute to engineering solutions for complex, multimedia environmental concerns.

Geotechnical Engineering

All major structures or systems that are supported by rock or soil depend on the expertise of a geotechnical engineer for their strength and stability.

Structural Engineering

When you focus your B.S. in civil engineering on structural engineering, you’ll make your mark on the world by designing the bones of modern buildings, bridges, docks, and towers. You’ll learn all about the behavior of building materials including steel, concrete, and wood, as well as how to analyze the effects of structural loads like wind or earthquakes.


A fulfilling career as a professional land surveyor, a topographic engineer, or a GIS mapping scientist begins here, with a B.S. in civil engineering from UNO.

Water Resources

Every aspect of life on Earth depends on water—and when you focus your bachelor’s degree in civil engineering on water resources, you’ll play a role in ensuring that safe, clean water is easily and readily available.
