Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering

Everywhere you look, you'll see the work of civil and environmental engineers. They are responsible for the design, construction, and maintenance of our infrastructure, from the roads we travel to the drinking water we get from our taps, from tunnels and airports to stadiums and skyscrapers. 

At AIU's School of Engineering and Computing, you'll learn from our renowned faculty experts and benefit from our high impact practices of student success, team-based learning, global perspective, undergraduate research, internships and co-ops, and community service. Our program is designed to prepare graduates for success in their immediate, as well as long-term, professional careers as practitioners, for obtaining a professional license, and for pursuing advanced studies and lifelong learning.
