Overview

From the ancient roads of the Roman Empire to New York City’s tallest skyscrapers, civil engineering is woven into the fabric of society as we know it, finding its roots in the construction of our world’s most revered structures. 

The field has evolved over the years, but its principles remain the same: civil engineers design and construct the public works that define much of what we now see as modern towns and cities and provide the quality of life that citizens of a modern society take for granted.

In addition to designing and building roads, wells, dams, bridges and levees, modern civil engineers are also found in industries including:

  • aerospace: designing jetliners and space stations
  • automotive: working to improve the safety and resilience of cars
  • shipbuilding: helping build ships and other floating vessels
  • electric power supply: generating, transmitting, and distributing power to the general public.

The Civil Engineering program from Manhattan College is the College’s oldest engineering program, founded in 1892. Since then, it has become an industry frontrunner — U.S. News & World Report routinely ranks our School of Engineering among the top 50 engineering schools in the nation whose highest degree is a bachelor’s or master’s.
