Civil Engineering

The Academy's Civil Engineering program has a long, proud tradition of preparing civil engineers who are knowledgeable and skilled in the areas of structural, construction, environmental, and geotechnical engineering.

  • Encompassing many disciplines, Civil Engineering offers a challenging career to individuals with a wide variety of interests
  • In the senior-level capstone course, students design a complete civil engineering system directly related to a Coast Guard problem
  • The program is accredited by ABET, the premier U.S. engineering accreditation agency.

Areas of Study

The Civil Engineering program provides a solid background in mathematics and engineering sciences, as well as in-depth study in structural analysis; environmental, water resources, construction, and geotechnical engineering.

Resources

The Civil Engineering major is a highly experiential program that makes use of a wide array of professional resources – from industry standards such as Tinius Olsen machines and concrete cylinder testers, to the most relevant civil engineering technologies. The Civil Engineering faculty partners with many commercial and federal entities to enrich the educational experience of cadets.
