Hey Transfer Students!

Are you interested in an Engineering degree? Here at UMD, we have 5 different types of Engineering that you can pursue. We have Mechanical, Industrial, Chemical, Civil, and Electrical. Today, let’s talk about Civil Engineering!


The B.S.C.E. program in civil engineering integrates topics from chemistry, physics, advanced mathematics, statistics, geology, and core engineering science to prepare graduates to work professionally in public and private organizations that design, develop, and construct structures; design, build, and maintain transportation systems and infrastructure; and design, operate, and control water resource systems. Graduates are rooted in safe and efficient design skills and show respect for and strive to improve the environment wherever they work. The program includes four areas in civil engineering: transportation engineering, environmental and water resource engineering, structural engineering, and geotechnical engineering. The Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.


The Civil Engineering building houses state-of-the-art classroom and laboratory facilities. Some of the highlights include: Labs in every focus area for hands-on training and student projects

  • Structural strong floor and reaction wall with 2-15 ton gantry cranes
  • Extensive high bay area
  • Hydraulic lab with large-scale flume
  • Construction materials lab
  • Geomaterials lab (soil and rock testing)
  • Parts fabrication lab
