Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Schools and Departments

The Construction Engineering curriculum provides a broad-based education, a strong background in mathematics and basic sciences, and a rigorous sequence of civil and construction engineering courses needed to provide the breadth and depth necessary for sustainable professional success within an ever-changing technological society. An emphasis is placed on engineering and constructability knowledge and skills that develop students practical problem-solving abilities for application to real-world projects. Towards accomplishing this educational goal, the curriculum provides a two-semester senior capstone design course in which students undertake significant real-world focused construction engineering assignments and projects. The Citadel’s Bachelor’s degree program in Construction Engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org. Additionally, faculty promote and support the value of practical experience, and as a result, students are highly encouraged and supported in identifying opportunities and obtaining gainful employment within the construction engineering profession, or a related field, for at least one summer, preferably between the junior and senior years.

All undergraduate courses taken at The Citadel with a subject prefix of CIVL and CONE will count towards the major GPA.
