The UL Lafayette Department of Civil Engineering will help you pave the way to your future success.
With a civil engineering degree, you can design and build the transportation systems that connect the country, create the necessary protections for our water systems, and determine the best materials for our bridges and roads. With such versatility and wide range of opportunities, a degree in civil engineering is the way to go.
In the Department of Civil Engineering, we focus on the ancient and modern engineering feats that influence and decide how we build and design all infrastructure.
Our work, which has been featured nationally, includes recreating how Romans lifted 5,300-pound blocks, determining how much sand shifting the Egyptian pyramids can withstand, creating the best mixture for asphalt, designing the best transportation systems to alleviate traffic congestion, and building the strongest structures over land and water.
The practical experiences we provide here prepare you for a career in environmental, geotechnical, structural, construction, or transportation engineering. You can work alongside industry professionals throughout your college career, forming connections with companies and individuals so you can land that co-op or internship while in school, and then a great job after graduation.
