A future of opportunity

Student in classroomCivil engineering positions account for the most jobs of any engineering field, and this job growth is predicted to continue. In Connecticut alone, job openings for civil and environmental engineers are expected to grow by 13.8 percent through 2022, which is higher than the aggregate rate of growth for all occupations in the state.

Federal funding for sustainable and “green” development has also led to an increase in environmentallyfriendly infrastructure projects, which has driven demand for civil and environmental engineers.

Our graduates will be prepared to work for Departments of Transportation, the Federal Highway Administration, the EPA, or consulting and engineering firms as a:
