Civil Engineering and Construction
The Department of Civil Engineering & Construction of the Allen E. Paulson College of Engineering & Computing offers programs in Civil Engineering, Construction Engineering and Construction Management.
A civil engineer works in the oldest branch of engineering and is typically engaged in design, construction, operation and maintenance of facilities and infrastructure. With its emphasis on applications rather than theory, Georgia Southern’s distinctive curriculum provides students with a broad exposure to four major areas within the discipline of civil engineering – environmental, structural, geotechnical and transportation.
Careers – In Georgia and other states in the U.S., the Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering degree along with the appropriate number of years of experience, and passing two 8-hour examinations, qualifies a graduate to become a licensed Professional Engineer.

Construction Engineering (pending US Dept. of Education approval)
A construction engineer is the key to successfully completing a construction project. Construction engineers are equipped to design and oversee the construction, maintenance and rebuilding of infrastructural facilities such as roads, bridges, airports, buildings and water treatment facilities in ways that best meet the unique demands of a particular environment. You will often work with a team including civil engineers and construction managers to solve technical challenges of complex construction projects.

We will apply for accreditation by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET once the program becomes eligible by graduating a cohort of students.
The College of Engineering and IT’s Department of Civil Engineering and Construction Management offers an accredited degree program of Construction Management taught by highly qualified faculty.
Careers – The Bachelor of Science in Construction degree program prepares individuals to be leaders in the construction industry. Construction managers facilitate project design and construction by managing resources, understanding construction contract law and dispute resolution, being knowledgeable of safety standards, and estimating costs and timelines.
