Bachelor of Science in 土木工程

Design a More Efficient, Sustainable World

Much of our world’s 基础设施 starts with ideas from 民事 engineers. This includes everything from the foundations of structures to the design of the buildings and bridges they support to the new, sustainable materials of which they are constructed and from the management and distribution of water resources to its ultimate treatment and release back to the natural environment. Do you envision a better-designed and sustainable society? Lead its development with a Bachelor of Science in 土木工程 from esball国际平台客户端.
