For more than 100 years, the Department of Civil Engineering at Santa Clara University has prepared students for a degree in civil engineering. Civil engineers plan, design, build, and maintain the facilities essential to our civilization: bridges, dams, highways, transit systems, airports, tunnels, irrigation systems, water supply, and industrial and commercial buildings. It is one of the most enriching careers open to men and women—rewarding in personal fulfillment, in enduring service to human-kind, and in financial benefits.

Civil Engineering includes the following subdisciplines: environmental engineering, structural engineering, construction engineering, geotechnical engineering, transportation engineering, and water resources engineering.
