Bachelor of Science
Civil engineers are problem solvers. They apply the latest in high-tech equipment and sophisticated procedures to address challenges concerning our environment and infrastructure.
S&T graduate, Michael Lancey, was the on-site project engineer for the construction of the new Yankee Stadium and most recently, he’s been working on the design of a new 18,500-seat stadium for the Kansas City Wizards soccer team. Read more »
As a civil engineer you will plan, design and supervise construction of bridges, dams, interstate highways and buildings. Service to the community, its development and improvement are fundamental aspects of a civil engineering career. Although you may specialize within a given area, you will be interacting with specialists in other areas, such as mechanical, electrical, or geological engineering in the planning, design, and construction of complex facilities.
Civil engineers must be effective in communicating with the public. You may be expected to work with property owners, concerned citizens, city officials, attorneys, and even medical doctors for concerns related to public health measures.
Provide safe drinking water, control flooding and runoff
Design foundations for buildings and structures
Provide reliable and economical bridges, port facilities and intricate dams
Move people and cargo from place to place
Refine construction techniques
Manage projects, quality control and contract administration
Develop construction materials such as asphalt, concrete and composites
Government Agencies (state departments of transportation, city planners, municipal engineers)
Industry (structural engineers, construction, project managers/analysts)
Civil Engineering Admission Criteria Effective Fall 2013
The following guidelines are used to evaluate applications for first-time admission to the civil engineering degree program:
Not currently on probation or deficiency status.
Completed all required courses in the common Freshman Engineering Program, and, specifically, with a grade of C or better in each of Math 14, Math 15, Phys 23 and Chem 1.
A cumulative GPA ≥ 2.5. The cumulative GPA includes both S&T and transfer courses. It includes any GPA adjustment from the grade replacement policy. The student must complete any and all paperwork to effect all desired grade replacements prior to applying for admission to the civil engineering program.
UM cumulative GPA ≥ 2.5. The UM cumulative GPA includes courses taken at any of the University of Missouri campuses. It includes all grades for any repeated courses, with no GPA adjustment from the grade replacement policy.
Students are allowed to continue taking sophomore level civil engineering courses in order to satisfy the admission requirements and re-apply for admission if necessary. However, for a student to graduate from the civil engineering program, official admission to the program must occur before the student begins to enroll in courses identified as junior year courses in the undergraduate catalog.
Making "green" concrete
If successful, this effort could divert millions of tons of the waste product away from ponds and landfills and reduce CO2 emissions. Learn more »
