Civil engineers design solutions in natural and urban environments.

The Civil Engineering program at Arizona State University emphasizes sustainability as an integrated approach to engineering that focuses on the long-lasting improvement of the human condition.

You can be a part of local, national and international research efforts to promote safe and sustainable development including transportation, water resources, buildings and other man-made structures.

Civil and environmental engineers work to enhance the built and natural environment in responsible and sustainable ways. As a civil and environmental engineer, you will help make improvements in:

  • Environmental protection and remediation.
  • Water conservation and treatment.
  • Environmental biotechnology.
  • Transportation materials and planning.
  • Structural and geotechnical engineering.

Our focus on sustainable engineering transforms the traditional design and construction methods of complex systems by the application of life cycle and environmental assessment, risk and uncertainty analysis and other emerging techniques.

Our faculty are actively engaged in research efforts that have a great impact on economic development and environmental quality. You’ll have the opportunity to get involved in research that is making a difference while pursuing your degree.

The Civil Engineering B.S.E. degree program at Arizona State University is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, Student enrollment and graduation data are available at

Lauren | Civil Engineering

At age 18, Lauren had already completed her undergraduate degree in civil engineering. She got off to her quick start with time spent in public schools, charter schools and homeschooling until at age 13 she pursued dual high school/college enrollment opportunities at Chandler-Gilbert Community College. For Lauren, her involvement in engineering activities took her all the way to Kenya, something she “never expected to be doing by age 18.” Read more
