Introduction

The Department of Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering at the University of New Mexico provides a high-quality learning environment for its undergraduate and graduate students, and promotes lifelong learning for practicing professionals. The Department’s focus is on quality instruction in engineering and construction management, innovative research, and community engagement.

Requirements for bachelor’s degrees in Civil Engineering, Construction Engineering and Construction Management include the requirements of the University of New Mexico Core Curriculum. In some cases, the choice of courses is left to the student. See specific core requirements and allowable courses.


Civil Engineering Laboratories

The civil engineering laboratories are designed to be an integral part of the educational process as well as an introduction to modern industrial laboratory practice in materials quality control, design and research. Well-equipped instructional laboratories are provided for engineering measurements, civil engineering materials, geotechnical engineering, fluid mechanics and environmental engineering. Modern experimental equipment and techniques are utilized in all laboratories.

Computational Facilities

Throughout the curriculum the student is exposed to a variety of computational equipment. The department has personal computers available for student use that are connected to the University’s central computing system.
