Advising Information

Civil Engineering BS

The four-year Civil Engineering BS program prepares graduates to enter the professional practice of civil engineering. The program imparts essential knowledge, tools and skills necessary for civil engineering graduates to become successful engineers and life-long learners. Graduates gain the ability to understand and apply mathematics, science and engineering science to solve engineering problems. They have the ability to design modern engineering systems, to work on multidisciplinary teams and to communicate by written and graphical means. Undergraduates have the opportunity for research experience by working on the many research projects conducted by the department. The program strives to instill a spirit of service and leadership among the students. Development of leadership skills, awareness of professional ethics, and participation in student organizations prepare the Civil Engineering BS graduate for professional practice. Many graduates continue their education by obtaining a M.S.C.E., MBA and/or Ph.D. Click on the links below to navigate to the Civil Engineering BS page or to view the civil engineering flowchart.

Construction Engineering BS

Environmental Engineering MEV

The Environmental Engineering MEV program at Texas Tech University is a unique program in which students can directly earn an ABET-accredited Master of Environmental Engineering. The Environmental Engineering MEV degree consists of successful completion of a five year "freshman-to-master's degree" program administered by the Department of Civil, Environmental, and Construction Engineering at Texas Tech University. The program has been ABET-accredited at the advanced level, which qualifies the program graduates for reciprocal professional accreditation in Europe, Australia, and many foreign countries, and also qualifies them to pursue their professional engineering license in environmental engineering. The Environmental Engineering MEV program is referred to as a professional degree program because the program stresses engineering practice rather than research. Students in the program have numerous opportunities for internships, summer jobs, and participation in research activities while in the program.

Student Advising:

At Texas Tech, each Civil, Environmental, and Construction Engineering student is assigned a faculty member as his or her academic and career guidance advisor. The faculty advisor helps each student develop a personal plan of courses leading to graduation. The faculty believe that the personal attention provided to the students — particularly during their first two years — is very important to the academic success of the student and are committed to this personal method of student advising.
