We build our world. It's not just a motto – it's reality. 

Civil engineering is the profession that makes civilization possible. Projects can affect where we live, work and play, and impacts countless lives. The Zachry Department of Civil Engineering is committed to preparing students to be future professional leaders. 

We encourage our students to have a global awareness, and know that you contribute professionally on a local, national and worldwide level. 

Civil engineers design and build infrastructure, and create safer materials, energy efficiencies, and urban renewals. They build the future, and our world, by being problem solvers and civic-minded.
