Undergraduate – Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering (BSCVE)
A Civil Engineering degree from Kennesaw State prepares you for planning, designing and constructing structures essential to modern life like buildings, bridges, roads, pipelines, canals, dams, airports, and railways. The Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering degree program teaches you the basic engineering principles, how to plan and manage construction projects, and to bring into consideration the many associated systems and resources that can impact the project.
As a Civil Engineering student, you will learn to master technical content as well as to develop effectiveness in the areas of communication, fiscal management and project control. The broad-based program curriculum is designed help you become a professional engineer who can capably handle both the technical and managerial aspects of a civil engineering project.
With this Civil Engineering training, you will be able to:
- Identify, formulate and solve complex engineering problems by applying the principles of engineering, science and mathematics.
- Apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental and economic factors.
- Communicate effectively with a range of audiences (key project stakeholders).
- Recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental and societal contexts.
- Function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks and meet objectives.
- Develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
- Acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
