Welcome to Civil Engineering!
Theresa Aragon – Civil Engineering Graduate Student
Continue excellence in our undergraduate and graduate programs by providing a strong technical foundation to our graduates for engineering design and problem solving; preparing quality graduates for licensure and professional careers in civil engineering; encouraging modern and effective methods of instruction; maintaining close student-faculty interactions; and instilling life-long learning skills for professional growth after graduation.
General Civil Engineering
Civil Engineers create the public and private works structures of our world, including freeways, high-rise buildings, bridges, dams, roads, airports and water treatment plants. They plan, design and supervise the construction of these facilities. Civil engineers will also design the world of tomorrow that could include habitats on other planets, plants that generate power from new sources and infrastructure for new modes of transportation.
Civil Engineering Studies
At NMSU, civil engineering students can specialize in environmental, general civil, geotechnical, structural and water resources engineering. They will follow a course of study that encompasses engineering principals and analysis, mathematics and physical and social sciences. Coursework includes engineering physics, mechanics, hydraulic engineering, chemisty and environmental engineering, in addition to electives for the various civil engineering options. Because of extensive hands-on experiences in internships,co-ops and senior capstone design projects, civil engineering graduates are well prepared to be licensed, practicing professional engineers.
