The Civil and Environmental Engineering degree from Portland State University offer research specializations that lead to real-world impacts in structural, geotechnical, environmental and water resources, and transportation. Our flexible curriculum allows students to select courses outside the major to tailor a degree to their interests, and our robust research activities fund many graduate research and teaching assistants in support of our mission. Graduates may count their degree towards the professional experience requirements for licensure (typically up to 1-year credit).
Civil and environmental engineers are in high demand. Civil and environmental engineers plan, design, manage and construct all of the public and private infrastructure that is the foundation of our modern society, including multimodal streets and highways, public transportation systems, water, and wastewater distribution systems, energy systems, buildings, bridges, and dams.
With a graduate degree, you will be grounded with the real-world knowledge and skills you need to succeed. You will be prepared to enter the field with significant technical credentials that are highly valued by employers.
Most of our alumni are working for consulting engineering firms or governmental agencies. Our bachelor’s degree also prepares students for graduate engineering programs and many have pursued advanced degrees in our program as well as the University of Washington, University of California, Berkeley, and many others.
