HOW TO USE THE TABLE
This table is not a ranking of civil engineering schools.
It is an informational tool for students and others to use
in learning more about and comparing these programs.
Civil engineering (CE) programs within colleges and universities
are grouped geographically by standard zones of the American
Society of Civil Engineers and are listed alphabeticallly.
West (Zone IV) = Calif., Ore.,
Wash., Idaho, Utah, Ariz., Nev., Mont., Alaska and Hawaii.
Central (Zone III) = Wyo., Colo.,
N.M., Iowa, Kan., Minn., Mo., Neb., Texas, Okla., Wis., N.D.,
S.D. and Ill. Mid-Southeast (Zone II)
= Ark., La., Miss., Ala. Ga., Fla., S.C., N.C., Tenn. Ky.,
W.Va., Va., Ind., Ohio and Mich., Northeast
(Zone I) = Conn., Del., N.H., Maine, Mass., Md., N.J.,
N.Y., Pa., R.I.; Vt., and Washington, D.C.
Listings include CE program's next level of academic structure
if it is not a defined department. All schools are accredited
by the Accreditation Board for Engineering
and Technology (ABET) or have accreditations pending.
The year of latest ABET accreditation is provided. Website
address may be for civil engineering program or overall college/university.
NA= Data unavailable or not
provided. Figures have been rounded up to whole numbers or
to the nearest hundred. Footnotes are explained at the bottom
of each page.
Student enrollment data is
for 2001-2002 year and includes full-time, part-time, undergraduate
and graduate, unless otherwise noted. Tuition
data includes fees, but not room and board charges.
Figures have been updated for 2002-2003 from additional sources,
where possible. For public institutions, separate figures
are given for residents (R) and nonresidents (NR). Please
check individual CE programs for up-to-date figures. Calendar=
semester (Sem), Quarter (Qtr)
or Trimester (Tri).
F/T faculty = Full-time. P/T
= Part-time or adjunct. Figures are for Spring 2002.
P.E. = Professional Engineer's license. F.E.
= Fundamentals of Engineering examination.
Faculty Expertise Three-letter
designation indicates the largest number of full-time faculty,
in descending order, in these CE fields: Cold regions engineering
(CLD); Construction engineering management (CM); Environmental
engineering (ENV); General civil (CIV); Geographic-surveying
(SVY); Geotechnical engineering (GEO); Materials science (MAT);
Ocean-coastal engineering (OCN); Structural engineering (STR);
Systems engineering (SYS); Transportation engineering (TRN);
Water resources engineering (WAT); and Other (OTH).The field
or fields with the largest CE faculty concentration are listed
in bold type.
