Civil Engineering

Tacoma Narrows Bridge

Oregon Tech's freshman-to-master's Civil Engineering degree program, the first such program in the Pacific Northwest, equips students to meet industry needs identified by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). This unique pairing of degrees prepares future professionals for licensure requirements proposed in the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES) Model Law.

Civil engineers design infrastructure—transportation networks, bridges, buildings, dams, communities, and water and waste management systems—for the enhancement of human welfare and protection of our environment. 

Degrees Offered

Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering (BSCE)

Students in the BSCE program have the opportunity to explore many facets of the profession, including geotechnical, environmental, structural, transportation, and water resources engineering. Whatever your individual interests, you'll learn both the theory and practical application of design and not just in your last few senior classes. Design work starts in the first year and builds in complexity throughout the program as you prepare for immediate employment and eventual licensure as a Professional Engineer.

Oregon Tech's BSCE program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET Inc. ABET accreditation is your assurance that our program meets the quality standards established by the engineering profession. Oregon Tech works closely with alumni, employers and the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) to ensure that students graduate with the skills necessary to be successful.

Master of Science in Civil Engineering (MSCE)

The MSCE degree at Oregon Tech is a practice-focused graduate degree. The degree has both project and thesis options and offers emphases in the areas of structural and transportation engineering. For more information please contact the graduate program director.  Graduate level courses are offered in water resources, structural, transportation and geotechnical areas.
