Civil and Environmental Engineering

Seattle University’s Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering offers three degrees: a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering, a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Science, and, starting in 2015, a Master of Science in Structural Engineering.  

Faculty and students in the department have received numerous awards that highlight the unparalleled quality and commitment of our students, faculty, and external partners. Particularly notable are eight recent awards from the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES)—more than any other program in the United States. 

Grounded in the Jesuit-Catholic tradition, our program has an outstanding faculty that is dedicated to undergraduate education. Our students study abroad, serve as leaders in vibrant student organizations, and thrive on nationally recognized senior capstone teams through our Project Center. Graduates of our program often work for government agencies or in the private sector, and engineering majors usually pursue the path to professional licensure. Many of our graduates also seek advanced degrees at top graduate and professional schools across the nation.
