About Civil and Architectural Engineering

The Department of Civil and Architectural Engineering provides ABET-accredited degree programs in civil engineering and architectural engineering, as well as a minor in land surveying. Civil engineering majors are provided course options in environmental, geotechnical, structural, transportation, and water resource engineering.  Architectural engineering majors have course options in building structural systems and building mechanical systems. Our programs combine fundamental theory, experimental laboratory experiences and computer modeling and simulation.

Now taking applications: UW Architectural Engineering faculty are offering a four-week Study Abroad program in June 2017 to London, Paris and Barcelona. We will study architectural history and modern engineering. This program, in its fourth year, is very successful and very affordable. For more information contact:

Why Civil and Architectural Engineering?

Civil Engineering

  • Incoming freshmen experience at least one designed-based course each year in an innovative course sequence called VISTA (Vertically Integrated Science and Technology Application), where students tackle modern engineering challenges from their very first semester. 
  • Undergraduate students find on-campus opportunities in the research laboratories and with a unique cooperative learning experience on the Wyoming Department of Transportation’s Design Squad.
  • Civil and architectural engineering jobs are projected to grow 20 percent by 2022.
  • Graduates from our program find employment with public agencies, private firms and in industry in small towns and large cities nationwide. Our placement of students in positions or in graduate schools each year is nearly 100 percent.
  • The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects 20 percent employment growth from 2012-2022 in civil engineering and 5 percent growth for architectural engineers.

Architectural Engineering

  • UW’s Architectural Engineering program has strong relationships with major employers and we have a great track record in internship and job placement.
  • Our faculty is dedicated to excellent teaching and research in leading-edge topics within the discipline. The building industry has changed dramatically in the past decade, and we are proud of our dedication to staying current.
  • If you prefer a hands-on education, Architectural Engineering is for you. You’ll find yourself building a brick wall in class, or going to visit a construction site. Bring your gloves and work boots!
  • If you enjoy computer models and simulations, Architectural Engineering is for you. UW is known for being at the forefront of computing. We have received national recognition three times for leadership in Building Information Modeling (BIM). We’ve found that UW graduates get more job offers and higher salaries because they can use the latest computing tools.
  • Finally, as an architectural engineer, you can make a difference in helping to solve the world’s social problems. Buildings generally use too much energy, leading to a waste of capital and a problem for the climate and environment. We train students to understand how buildings can be designed to use less energy, and to keep the occupants healthy and happy.
