Department Information
The mission of the Civil Engineering Department is to prepare students for productive careers in industry and government by providing an excellent education incorporating modern material labs that support soil sampling, classification and testing, field sampling equipment as well as asphalt and concrete mix design and testing capability.

The Civil Engineering Department offers hands-on learning, which is a hallmark of an Oregon Tech education. The newly renovated civil labs allow for exploration using state-of-the-art equipment. Faculty instruction is well supported with discipline-specific software, an excellent IT department, a dedicated civil lab technician, and Canvas as the learning management system. Our civil engineering student body of 120 students is curious and enthusiastic in the classroom and looks forward to your engaging instruction.

Our graduates are in high demand in industry because employers recognize that our students come prepared to be immediately productive as a member of their organization.
