About Civil Engineering
The Department of Civil Engineering awards a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering (BSCE), Master of Engineering (M.E.), Master of Science (M.S.), and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degrees.
UND's BSCE program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET. The next scheduled ABET accreditation visit is in 2027.
Our mission is to prepare the next generation of civil engineers through comprehensive education and innovative research to address changing engineering and technological needs, while creating an environment where students, faculty, and staff can achieve their full potential to serve the profession and improve the safety, health, and wellbeing of the society and the environment.
