Every day, from the water faucet to the highway, you see the work of civil and environmental engineers in action. In fact, you don't just see their work-you use it. Whether you're driving across the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, gazing up at the Empire State Building, or canoeing down the Delaware River, you're benefiting from the innovation and ingenuity of engineers who specialize in planning, designing, and supervising the construction of suspension bridges, water-treatment facilities, transit systems, and even space satellites. At Rutgers' Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, respected researchers and inquisitive engineers-in-training work together to serve New Jersey and the nation with groundbreaking ideas designed to make our world a better place.

Students interested in the B.S./B.A. or B.S. Dual Degree program would begin at the School of Arts and Sciences and complete all of the requirements for whichever Bachelor of Arts (or Bachelor of Science) program they are interested in and then would apply to enter into the School of Engineering following the same criteria for a school-to-school transfer. This is a more involved process and takes additional coursework than a double major would. Students completing this program receive two separate degrees/diplomas, one from each school.

Rutgers uses your FAFSA to develop a financial-aid package based on your qualifications, financial need and the funds available to the university. Your package may include any or a combination of these major financial aid sources:

  • Gift aid does not require repayment and is divided into three categories: grants (which recognize financial need) and scholarships and awards (which recognize academic merit, special talents, or other achievements).
  • Loans must be repaid (usually after graduation) and can come from private lenders as well as federal, state and university sources.
  • Work-study allows students to earn money for college expenses while gaining valuable skills - often in their intended field.


The degree awarded upon completion of this program is the B.S. in civil engineering which is professionally accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.

The Rutgers name is recognized everywhere, and a Rutgers degree makes a great first impression. We’ve built our academic reputation on solid accomplishments:

  • Rutgers is a member—so are Harvard, Yale, and Berkeley—of the prestigious Association of American Universities, the 61 leading research universities in North America.
  • More than 175 Rutgers research centers support pioneering work in stem cells, climate change, DNA analysis, and more.
  • Rutgers’ international reputation draws top students from more than 130 countries and all 50 states.
