Overview

The Civil Engineering classes in our program at the Rockhurst University are designed to educate students in the many specialties within the field, such as structural, construction, environment, geotechnical and transportation. As one of the only civil engineering programs offered in the Kansas City metro, we’re proud to lead students in the city in their pursuit to learn how to become a civil engineer.

Simply described, a civil engineering degree specializes in the environment that has been built around us. This field of study, however, is far from simple. From the construction of roads, buildings, bridges, or water supply systems, to managing a construction site, to analyzing research, civil engineers are responsible for the very foundation of the society we know. A civil engineering degree from Rockhurst will pave the way for an important and innovative career.
