Today's civil engineers are in the forefront of technology. They are the leading users of sophisticated high-tech products - applying the very latest concepts in computer-aided design (CAD) to support design, construction, project scheduling, and cost control. Civil engineering encompasses the planning, design, construction, and operation of facilities essential to modern life ,ranging from transit systems to offshore structures. Civil engineers are problem solvers, meeting the challenges of pollution, traffic congestion, drinking water and energy needs, urban redevelopment, and community planning. As the technological revolution expands, as the world's population increases, and as environmental concerns mount, the civil engineer has a vital role to play in improving the quality of life for the 21st century.
Why study Civil Engineering at NJIT?
NJIT's Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering has been providing quality education for nearly 90 years. Its graduates are leaders in industry, government and military enterprises throughout New Jersey and across the nation. The teaching program is enriched by advanced research programs in environmental engineering and science, building sciences and materials, and transportation. The department collaborates closely with NJIT's New Jersey School of Architecture, and a dual degree program that combines the Master's in Architecture with the MS in Civil Engineering is a popular option.
