The Civil Engineering Program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET, http://www.abet.org.


Civil Engineering Program

Goals, Objectives & Design Integration

Graduates will be employed in industries, academia or state and federal government agencies or enter into or complete graduate or professional degree programs. Graduates will use modern engineering techniques, skills, and tools to identify, formulate, and solve civil engineering problems; or design structures or systems considering functionality, safety and cost effectiveness; or evaluate the impact of civil engineering solutions in a global, societal, and environmental context consistent with the principles of sustainable development. Graduates will engage in the professional practice in civil engineering or closely related fields. Graduates will demonstrate an understanding of ethical, societal, and professional responsibility; engage in life-long learning opportunities; and demonstrate effective communication and interpersonal skills within multidisciplinary teams.

Civil Engineering professionals plan, design, construct, and operate facilities which are essential to the quality of modern life, the Civil Engineering curriculum is based upon providing a fully-integrated design experience by beginning with introductory courses in the study of engineering history and economics, then progressing through a broad coverage of the primary areas of practice within Civil Engineering (surveying, structures, geotechnical engineering, construction engineering, water resources, transportation, and environmental engineering), and finishing with a year-long capstone Civil Engineering senior design project. The goal of the Civil Engineering program is to prepare students to pursue graduate education in their specific areas of interest, to pass the Fundamental of Engineering and Professional Engineer exams in the areas of practice within Civil Engineering, and become involved in design, project planning and research.

 

Civil Engineering Program with Concentration in Environmental Engineering

Goals, Objectives & Design Integration

The objective of the Concentration in Environmental Engineering within the Civil Engineering program at Temple University is to provide students with the skills needed to understand environmental problems and to design environmental systems to reduce and/or mitigate pollution. Environmental Engineering is a hybrid of Civil Engineering and Chemical Engineering, and it is thus natural for a civil engineer to broaden his/her knowledge in Environmental Engineering. Students in this concentration would be in a program that satisfies ABET accreditation for civil engineers, but they are more equipped to pass the Fundamental of Engineering and the Professional Engineer exams in the Environmental Engineering Category.

Minor in Environmental Engineering

Room 514, Engineering and Architecture Building

1947 North 12th Street

Philadelphia, PA 19122

215-204-7814

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) offers a five-course (15 s.h.) undergraduate Minor in Environmental Engineering. Undergraduates from the Physical Sciences, Mathematics, and Engineering are eligible to participate in this program.

The purpose of the Minor is to allow students from a wide range of undergraduate majors to obtain an introductory background in sustainability, pollution prevention, environmental modeling, and pollution control technologies most appropriate to their interests and major field. The Minor in Environmental Engineering will add considerably to students' major program skills and make them more valuable to employers. Mathematics and Science majors will gain an understanding of engineering problem-solving processes and standard pollution control technologies. Engineering majors will understand the environmental effects of technologies in their major field and how to manage those effects. After the student completes the requirements for the minor, the minor will be recorded on the student's official university transcript upon graduation.

Academic Requirements for the Environmental Engineering Minor

Students pursuing an Environmental Engineering Minor must meet the following requirements:

  • A minimum of C- in each course
  • An overall GPA of 2.0 for courses in the Environmental Engineering minor

Courses

Two required courses:

  • Civil Engineering 2711: Environmental Chemistry & Microbiology (prerequisites: Chemistry 1031, Chemistry 1033)
  • Civil Engineering 3711: Environmental Engineering (prerequisites: Chemistry 1031, Mathematics 1042)

Three elective courses (minimum) may be taken after completion of the two required courses; choose from the following:

  • Civil Engineering 4621: Engineering Hydrology
  • Civil Engineering 4631: Environmental Hydrology
  • Civil Engineering 4711: Air Pollution Control System
  • Civil Engineering 4721: Water & Wastewater Systems Design
  • Civil Engineering 4731: Solid & Hazardous Waste Management

Students are required to complete prerequisite courses (shown in parentheses above) as indicated for the two required courses. These prerequisite courses do not count toward the minimum of 15 semester hours. The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering maintains an approved list of elective courses.

Declaration of Environmental Engineering Minor

Students who are interested in pursuing an Environmental Engineering minor should speak to their advisor in the school or college in which they are pursuing their degree. Students should formally declare the Environmental Engineering minor upon completing no more than 6 credits toward the minor. There is no penalty if the minor is not completed. For more information and to declare the minor, please contact the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering.

Cooperative Education Programs

A Cooperative Education (Co-op) is an optional program available at the College of Engineering where you have the opportunity to gain professional work experience before graduation. It is designed to give you the chance to apply the knowledge learned in the classroom to real life problems. You will be exposed to the latest technology and new ideas at a worksite helping you understand your field of work more extensively. During the Co-op, you will make valuable connections with professionals in your field. A cooperative education can enhance and strengthen you academically, professionally and personally.

Below are the five-year curricula for the Co-op programs leading to the Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering and the Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering with a concentration in Environmental Engineering. The minimum requirement for graduation is 127 semester hours.
