Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering & Computer Science

Overview

The Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering and Computer Science provides expertise in computational modeling and simulation of civil and environmental processes and systems. Students will be prepared for practice in the engineering and control of processes and systems vital for the sustainable development and management of civil and environmental infrastructure, as well as the fundamentals of program design, software development, and algorithms and data.

Innovative Curriculum

Computational and simulations-based approaches in engineering research and design practices have increased substantially in recent years in response to the rapidly increasing availability of data from remote and in-situ sensors as well as networked systems. Students who graduate with this combined major degree will have the breadth and depth of understanding and abilities to contribute to innovative and sustainable solutions to support global civil and environmental infrastructure demands.

Students have the option of selecting from several minors to complement their degree and personalize their path. Students can select from minors in the department, in other engineering departments, or from across the university.

The Accelerated Master’s Degree PlusOne program allows current undergraduate students to accelerate the attainment of the master’s degree by applying graduate credits taken as an undergraduate toward both the undergraduate and graduate degrees. Current students apply to enroll in the PlusOne program. Students attain their bachelor’s degree followed by a PlusOne year to complete the master’s degree.

Students currently earning a BS in Civil Engineering and Computer Science can select from the PlusOne pathways available for BS in Civil Engineering students.

Experiential Learning

Experiential learning is the heart of a Northeastern education, combining rigorous coursework with hands-on experience in the classroom, in the lab, and in the field—locally and abroad. With our signature cooperative education (co-op) program, students typically gain six months of work experience integrated as part of the educational program. Both five-year, three-co-op and four-year, two-co-op program options are available.
