Design your future career in civil engineering

Prepare for a dynamic career with a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from UCF. Florida is among the top states with the highest employment of civil engineers, and UCF is conveniently located near top civil engineering employers such as WSP Global, HNTB, Atkins, Kiewit Corporation, the St. Johns River Water Management District, the Florida Department of Transportation and the City of Orlando. 

UCF’s civil engineering program focuses on the design and analysis of structures, geotechnical engineering, engineering mechanics, water resources and transportation engineering. With this degree, you can work to improve the quality of life and safety of society, and develop smart city initiatives and technology innovations for civil engineering.


  • UCF is consistently ranked among the top schools for engineering undergraduate education by U.S. News and World Report.
  • UCF is ranked the among the top five U.S. transportation science and technology programs, and is consistently ranked among the top civil engineering programs by ShanghaiRanking.
  • UCF is located near major civil engineering employers such as the St. Johns River Water Management District, the Florida Department of Transportation and the City of Orlando. 
  • Choose an accelerated track that allows you to earn a B.S. and M.S. simultaneously.
  • Sit for the national Fundamentals of Engineering exam during your senior year and move one step closer to professional licensure. 


The B.S. in Civil Engineering requires 128 credit hours, including general education classes, common program prerequisites, basic and advanced core classes, restricted electives and a discipline-specific and capstone design courses. 

There are no additional requirements for admission into the program beyond admission to UCF. 

Students also have the option of pursuing the accelerated track, which allows them to earn a master’s degree as well as a bachelor’s degree. Qualified students may apply for the accelerated track upon completion of 64 credit hours. They may choose to complete a master’s degree in civil engineering or environmental engineering; however, acceptance into the accelerated track does not guarantee admission into the graduate program.
