The Civil Engineering program of Loyola Marymount University provides a broad background in all aspects of civil engineering, providing our graduates with the flexibility to practice in any of the specialties or to pursue an advanced degree. The program provides an opportunity to get hands-on experience with classes in surveying as well as laboratories in fluid mechanics, hydraulics, soil mechanics, mechanics of materials, structures, steel, and reinforced concrete design. Engineering design experiences are integrated throughout the curriculum beginning with the freshman engineering courses and extending through the last semester of the senior year. Design courses provide working experience with computer software used in the profession. Group and team projects prepare the student for real world engineering experiences. A number of electives provides the student with the opportunity to specialize in the following areas of concentration:
- Water Resources
Program Educational Objectives
The Civil Engineering undergraduate program has established the following program educational objectives that are consistent with the mission of the University and that describe the expected accomplishments of graduates during the first several years following graduation. Civil Engineering program graduates will:
- Be productive in the civil engineering profession and/or other professional fields;
- Uphold the code of ethics of the profession and be cognizant of social equity and sustainability issues;
- Further develop their professional and/or technical qualifications through activities such as, but not limited to, graduate studies, continuing education, licensing, and/or certifications;
- Be involved with professional organizations in civil engineering and/or other related fields; and
- Exhibit leadership in civil engineering and/or other related fields.
To accomplish these program educational objectives, analysis and design courses in the fields of environmental, geotechnical, hydraulic, structural, and water resources engineering are offered in addition to preparatory courses in oral and written communications, mathematics, sciences, and basic mechanics. A broad base of theory and design is provided along with discussion of current issues and practices of the profession. Through class assignments, students will become proficient in the use of computers and pertinent software, spreadsheets, presentations, drawing, and geographical information system (GIS) programs. Integrated with these courses is the University Core curriculum.
