University of Missouri - Civil & Environmental Engineering Program
Civil and Environmental engineers solve problems that directly affect nearly everyone’s daily life and health. They are vital to our nation’s effort to rebuild and repair the public infrastructure and protect our natural resources. One of engineering’s oldest disciplines, civil engineering focuses on designing, managing and strengthening:
• Bridges, dams and waterways
• Buildings and transportation hubs
• Energy resources and management
• Pollution control
• Roads and tunnels
• Soil science
• Waste and hazardous material disposal systems
• Water supply and sewage systems
You’ll be prepared for a growing industry by the civil and environmental engineering program at Mizzou. You’ll find talented and dedicated faculty focused on top notch research and teaching.
More than one-third of civil engineering graduates today go on to earn a master’s degree.
Most full-time graduate students are supported as teaching or research assistants. Some pursue graduate studies parttime while working full-time.
More and more civil engineers are continuing on to the doctorate degree, usually to prepare for careers in research or teaching, and to solve more sophisticated design problems. Obtaining a master’s degree or PhD will greatly help you become an expert in your chosen field.
In civil engineering, as in any profession, your education never ends as old knowledge is continually supplemented by new knowledge. To keep up with the changes, you may pursue continuing education programs made available by universities and professional societies, such as the American Society of Civil Engineers.
