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.
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 preparation for professional practice, Georgia Southern’s distinctive curriculum provides students with a broad exposure to five major areas within the discipline of civil engineering – water resources/environmental, structural, transportation-pavement/geotechnical, construction and surveying/geomatics.
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.
Civil Engineering program at Georgia Southern University is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
All web visitors are invited to read the Program Educational Objectives and the Student Outcomes posted on the Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering page.
Construction Engineering (new program, since Fall 2018)
A construction engineer is often 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 project demands while being effective stewards of the environment. You will often work with a team including civil engineers and construction managers to solve technical challenges of complex construction projects.
Careers – In Georgia and other states in the U.S., the Bachelor of Science in Construction 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.
We will apply for accreditation by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET once the program becomes eligible by graduating a cohort of students.
Georgia Southern’s Civil Engineering and Construction Department offers a comprehensive program of Construction Management taught by highly qualified faculty. This well-establish program includes a highly developed knowledge base and skill set in order for the student to deal with modern construction processes. The program also includes a business course regiment to support timely and successful business operations required in construction.
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, facilitating the compliance of construction contract law and facilitating dispute resolution, ensuring the appropriate application of safety standards, and by performing accurate estimating and scheduling.
Construction Management program is accredited by the American Council of Construction Education (ACCE) since 1995.
