B.S. in Civil Engineering (BSCE)
Residential Civil Engineering Degree
Gain a broad spectrum of civil engineering’s foundational principles with a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering (BSCE) from Liberty University. Here, you’ll develop practical and technical skills in Civil Engineering through lecture, laboratory, and field experiences. You’ll also participate in a Senior Design Capstone Project that can mirror what you’ll encounter in the workplace.
With this degree, you’ll prepare for a career as a civil engineer for the local, state, or federal government or in the private sector where you could work in construction, industry, design, or more. Civil engineers can work in the office or on the field, nationally or internationally, and can be in the public eye or set apart from it.
As a civil engineer, you could:
- Design roads, bridges, dams, etc.
- Analyze the strength of soils, concrete, steel, etc.
- Provide safe drinking water to the public
- Treat wastewater before returning it to the environment
The BSCE focuses on construction, geotechnical, structural, and transportation technical areas.
Through this degree, you’ll also sharpen your decision-making, problem-solving, and leadership skills. Learn from professors who are grounded in their Christian faith while you develop the values, knowledge, and skills essential to positively influence the civil engineering profession.
The Civil Engineering program will be applying for ABET accreditation during the 2023-2024 accreditation cycle.
