About

Civil engineers plan and oversee the design, construction and maintenance of building structures and infrastructures, such as roads, railways, airports, bridges, dams, levees, harbors, irrigation projects, power plants and water and sewerage systems that can withstand all weather conditions. We offer a bachelor degree in Civil Engineering at the Louisiana Tech University. 

Overview

Generally, civil engineers fall into two types: consulting engineers and contracting engineers. Consultants take care of the design work of projects and work predominantly in an office. Contractors then take the designs and implement them during construction. 

Civil engineers usually work in six sub-disciplines: Construction, Environmental, geotechnical, structural, transportation, and water resource engineering. Civil engineering takes place in the public sector from municipal to national governments, and in the private sector from individual homeowners to international companies.

The Louisiana Tech University Civil Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET. To find out more information about the program mission, educational objectives, student outcomes and enrollment and graduation data, go to our Accreditation & Enrollment page.
