Civil Engineering at Boise State

Civil Engineers plan, design and manage the construction, expansion, and repair of infrastructure systems in both the public and private sectors. These systems include wastewater and water supply, transportation, environmental, electric power, and the collection of buildings that make up urban and rural communities.

Civil Engineering at Boise State University is an expansive discipline. Boise State offers a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering with emphasis areas of environmental, geotechnical, structural, transportation, and water resources. Modern laboratories and computing facilities allow students to tackle innovative solutions to modern infrastructure issues while partnering with other Boise State departments such as Geosciences, Public Policy and Administration, Community and Regional Planning, and Political Science. 

Boise State’s Civil Engineering Club allows students to apply classroom knowledge to real-world engineering through club activities, including the AISC Steel Bridge, ASCE Concrete Canoe, and ASCE Sustainable Solutions.
