Associate Professor Joseph Owino, Head
It is the mission of the civil engineering program to provide a high-quality education to students of all backgrounds to become civil engineering professionals who plan, design, build and manage infrastructure needed for the challenging environment of the 21st century. The specialty also aims to provide service to the civil engineering profession locally and regionally.
In support of this mission, the civil program aims to produce graduates who
- participate in professional societies;
- agree that the environment at UTC was conducive to their achieving;
- work in multidisciplinary teams;
- are progressing toward professional registration;
- have the ability to function as civil engineers;
- pursue graduate studies.
The civil engineering program curriculum provides an opportunity to obtain a firm foundation in engineering science and develops the techniques of analysis and design which are basic for the successful practitioner. Emphasis is placed on developing problem-solving skills. The students’ experiences culminate in a year-long civil engineering team project supported by industry. The civil specialty also offers an option in structural engineering.
The civil engineering program faculty have degrees in civil engineering and is committed to delivering a civil engineering curriculum that has strong emphasis on engineering analysis and utilization of modern engineering tools.
Degree and Accreditation:
Civil Engineering program graduates obtain a B.S.C.E. degree. This program is accredited by the EAC of ABET Inc. under the Civil Engineering Program Criteria.
