Civil Engineering Concentration

NNU’s Bachelor of Science in Engineering degree is an ABET-accredited, multidisciplinary degree dedicating two years to broad engineering fundamentals and two years to your Civil Engineering concentration.
  • Graduates from NNU's engineering program have a high FE exam pass rate and job placement rate
  • Student to faculty ratio of 15:1
  • Faculty have years of industry experience to draw on in mentoring you
The civil engineering concentration deals with the design, construction and maintenance of physical and natural structures. Civil engineers are vital to building a city, state or nation’s system of travel such as roads, tunnels, bridges and railways. For this degree, you will take courses in transportation engineering, soils engineering, structural engineering and fluid mechanics, as well as complete a senior research project tailored toward this area of study. This coursework complements the ongoing department research projects, giving you opportunities to gain hands-on experience.
Undergraduate NNU Engineering students with a Civil Engingeering concentration will complete 15 credits of upper division Civil Engineering courses at Boise State University (BSU) as a part of NNU’s Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering degree concentration. Students will gain admission to BSU upper division Civil Engineering courses and upon completion of the program will be eligible for admission to the BSU Master of Science Civil Engineering graduate program. 
Besides access to cutting-edge research, you will have professors with years of industry experience to draw on in mentoring you and giving you hands-on training with fabrication and lab equipment. With a 15:1 student to faculty ratio, you get to know your professor and your professors really care about you, both in and out of the classroom. At the same time, you benefit from NNU’s broad liberal arts educational, spiritual and residential campus experience.
