Our program's dedicated faculty prepare students who pursue civil engineering degrees to become leaders by fostering creativity, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills and awareness of the environmental impact of their work.
Civil engineering is perhaps the oldest of all engineering disciplines and the first to be recognized and developed as a field of study. The field encompasses the planning, design, construction and maintenance of structures and the alteration of natural geography to meet human needs. Civil engineers design and build suspension bridges, dams, tunnels, skyscrapers, the interstate highway system, airports, ports, shopping centers, residential developments, water delivery and purification facilities, and irrigation systems.
One of the rare historical records of civil engineering within academia is contained in the first catalog of this university, dated August 1821. Among the description of offerings to students in 1820 was..."Civil Engineering, including the construction of roads, canals, locks and bridges." Norwich University was the first private school in the United States where students were taught engineering as a separate branch of education. What better place to launch your own career.
