President Obama says the United States is suffering from a pronounced shortage of engineers, and he has called on the private sector to annually train 10,000 new engineers. “We’ve made incredible progress on education, helping students to finance their college educations, but we still don’t have enough engineers,” Obama says. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, civil engineers are expected to have employment growth of 24 percent over the projections decade, much faster than the average for all occupations. Spurred by general population growth and the related need to improve the Nation’s infrastructure, more civil engineers will be needed to design and construct or expand transportation, water supply, and pollution control systems, and buildings and building complexes.

Civil engineers design and supervise the construction of roads, buildings, airports, tunnels, dams, bridges, and water supply and sewage systems. They must consider many factors in the design process from the construction costs and expected lifetime of a project to government regulations and potential environmental hazards such as earthquakes and hurricanes. This program will prepare students to enter this exciting, high-demand field enabling graduates to pursue challenging and rewarding careers.
