The mission of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering is to provide a nationally recognized student-centered learning environment for the development of principled leaders. Our curriculum emphasizes theoretical and practical engineering concepts, in a collaborative collegial environment on campus. Housed in LeTellier Hall, our department offers small class sizes, an engaging and supportive learning environment, uniquely dedicated faculty support, and 7 labs, providing carefully designed hands-on experiences for students, all under the guidance of full-time professors.
A wide range of educational enrichment activities are available to complement student learning within the course curriculum, including undergraduate research, participation in professional societies, field trips, academic competitions, study abroad, internships, career development, mentoring programs, community outreach, service learning, and more.
Our Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering program is offered as follows:
- Day program for South Carolina Corps of Cadets, veteran, and active-duty students.
- Evening program for transfer students as a 2+2 program (students complete the first 2 years of study at Trident Technical College, or other regionally accredited institution, then transfer to The Citadel to attend evening classes for four semesters and two summers).
Our graduate degree and certificate programs:
- The Master of Science in Civil Engineering program provides a student-centered learning environment focused on advanced applied engineering methods and professional skills.
- Graduate certificates are offered in the following areas: Built Environment and Public Health, Geotechnical Engineering, Structural Engineering, and Transportation Engineering.
The Civil Engineering program, offering a Bachelor of Science degree, is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
Faculty teach a broad-based curriculum focused specifically on classes that provide the students with an appropriate academic background for successfully entering professional practice at the BS level and advanced curriculum for graduate-level students.
