The value of an engineering education is a lifetime of opportunity. Civil Engineering at University of Saint Thomas Saint Paul is the bridge between the ever expanding technological frontier and today’s societal needs.


Engineers use design, science, mathematics, creativity and business analysis to create solutions to improve almost every facet of human life. The production of food, energy, clean water, medicine, cars, transportation systems, building materials, robotic machines, computers, communications equipment, electronic devices, paper, plastics, and even clothing fibers is all driven by engineers. Engineering is central to the creation of new technologies such as medical devices, renewable energy, efficient engines, advanced materials, micro-machines, biotechnology, and nanotechnology. Engineers are also leaders in broader fields such as business, medicine, patent law and government.

About Civil Engineering at the University of University of Saint Thomas Saint Paul:

Our mission is to provide an applied, values-based learning experience that produces well rounded, innovative engineers and technology leaders who have the technical skills, passion and courage to make a difference.

Program outcomes and objectives are designed to provide the graduate with a rigorous engineering experience balanced with the perspective of a liberal arts foundation. The educational objectives of each engineering program describes what we expect our graduates to accomplish in their work after graduation, as follows:

  • Create with Engineering Skills: Use engineering skills and principles appropriate to the major to create systems, products, and services that meet needs of people and improve the quality of their lives, and use resources wisely.
  • Grow in a Learning Profession: Increase personal knowledge and skill through graduate or professional study, appropriate certifications, and work assignments.
  • Contribute through Citizenship: Contribute time, knowledge, and skills to the profession, community, and world.
  • Lead through One’s Work: Serve as a team member or team leader, demonstrating ethical behavior, social sensitivity, and professional responsibility.
  • All said, the students stand at the center of our work. Our faculty are dedicated teachers and practitioners and work to foster a vibrant educational environment. We strongly believe that an Engineering education is about rolling up your sleeves, getting your hands dirty on projects, and wrapping your mind around ideas which have the potential to change our world. Graduates will demonstrate competence in a variety of skills that enhance their ability to solve problems in diverse ways to meet the needs of the global community. Graduates will also develop teamwork and effective communication skills while gaining a comprehensive understanding of the design process and engineering systems.

    The School of Engineering curricula and programs are designed to foster an engaging engineering experience for our students. The year-long Senior Design Clinic pairs teams of students with members of industry in creating a prototype solution to a real technical problem in the field. Our industry partners in the Twin Cities area sponsor numerous co-op and summer internships for our students. Beyond the theory developed in the lectures, the Electrical, Mechanical and Computer Engineering curricula are designed to continually develop the hands-on skills of our students. From the freshman to senior level laboratories, students continue to gain a working knowledge of the modern engineering tools necessary to solve advanced technical problems.
