Program Goals, Objectives and Design Integration:

The objective of the Civil Engineering program at Temple University is to provide students with a broad knowledge of mathematics, physical and engineering sciences, computer utilization, communication skills, and societal factors from which students can synthesize unique solutions to relatively complex problems related to Civil Engineering. Since 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, seek professional licensing, and become involved in design, project planning and research.

Most technical courses in the program are offered during the day only.
