Are you interested in the foundations and structures that help the world function? The Civil Engineering program offered by Western New England University focuses on the latest developments in the design, efficiency, construction, and maintenance of society’s infrastructure.


The Civil Engineering program is offered by Western New England University.

You will learn about how the world around you is constructed through classroom, laboratory, and internship experiences (including study abroad in China and international collaborative projects, such as Solar Decathlon competitions). With a focus on entrepreneurship, innovation, interdisciplinary learning, and green engineering, you’ll have the education to play a role in building tomorrow's framework from the ground up.

Our nation’s success has been built on the foundation of our solid infrastructure—much of it constructed decades ago. Today, thousands of public works projects in the United States are in desperate need of repair and many more new infrastructure developments are necessary to keep our country competitive. According to the latest U.S. News & World Report ranking, civil engineering is ranked #5 and environmental engineering is ranked #4 in Best Engineering Jobs. There has never been a greater need for civil and environmental engineers to plan, execute, and lead these important projects.


Civil engineers work in both private and public sectors of the industry as well as the military. Private sector employers range from small consulting firms and large international engineering companies. Public sector jobs include working in state and local governments, as well as the federal government. Civil engineers also work in the military as commissioned officers or civilian engineers. Furthermore, students graduating from our Civil Engineering program have options to work in or pursue graduate degrees in environmental-related fields, as well as petroleum-related or railway-related fields.
