Our curriculum is designed to meet the demands of a 21st century civil engineer, including an option for students to integrate a dual major with International Studies.

Students at Lafayette may choose to focus on structural, environmental, geotechnical, transportation, construction, or water resources engineering.  The curriculum includes laboratory-based courses in each of these six concentrations.  Design skills are developed in the introductory, laboratory-based courses, in technical elective courses, and in the two-semester, senior capstone design course.

For the BS degree in Civil Engineering, students must take a minimum of 36 courses, complete the Lafayette College “common course of study (ccs)” and are required to take certain specific courses.
