College of Engineering
Civil engineers design, construct, and maintain society’s infrastructure: bridges, dams and levees, harbors, waterways and irrigation facilities; water supply systems; contaminant flows, waste treatment facilities, and air and geoenvironmental remediation; airports, highways, railroads, and intelligent transportation systems; pipelines; and power lines. Purdue’s curriculum accommodates civil engineering’s breadth by requiring a fundamental set of courses and offering you the flexibility to concentrate portions of your study in areas of special interest to you. The program prepares you to enter into the professional practice of civil engineering and provides you a solid base for graduate study and research in your area of professional interest.
