The civil engineering curriculum strives to meet the demands of business, industry, and government. It develops depth in the various areas of the civil engineering professions such as construction engineering management, environmental, structures, applied mechanics, coastal and offshore engineering, water resources, hydraulics, surveying and photogrammetry, soil mechanics, transportation and urban engineering, computer use and systems analysis. It is designed to give the students the broad educational background essential to modern civil engineering practice, including a better understanding of societal, environmental, and energy problems. The Civil Engineering department offers undergraduate, graduate and Ph.D. degrees.
Doctoral level teaching and research in the areas of structural engineering; engineering mechanics; water resources; hydrology; fluid mechanics; hydraulic engineering; transportation engineering and planning; soil mechanics; geotechnical engineering; construction methods and management; and engineering geodesy and surveying are supported.
Interdisciplinary material relating to aspects of mechanical or electrical engineering to civil engineering is collected. Additional material relevant to the field is available through the Government Documents Collection. Material produced by State of Hawaii organizations are added to the Hawaiian collection.
