The Student Experience in Civil Engineering
Civil and Environmental Engineering students at Mizzou have the unique opportunity to participate in many active student organizations such as American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), Chi Epsilon – Honors Society, and Water & Environmental Technologists (WET). Many of them are also undergraduate researchers working closely with CEE faculty and graduate students. Independent and team-based work environments prepare CEE students for their future to become global engineering leaders.
Civil and Environmental Engineering students are prepared for the changing industry by talented and dedicated faculty focused on world-class research and teaching. Engineering topics are selected to provide the necessary technical abilities and skills needed. Freshmen take basic computer and graphics courses. Sophomores and juniors focus on learning environmental fundamentals and engineering science through topics courses. Senior year enables students to specialize in one or more areas of the program or to obtain a broad educational background across the civil engineering discipline. The senior experience culminates with the capstone deign project, a real-life design project completed jointly with practicing engineers from industry and government organizations.
