Department of Civil Engineering and Construction


The departmental goals are to instill in students state-of-the-art knowledge for their professional careers and life-long development skills needed to enter the fields of civil engineering, construction, and construction engineering, while meeting all the requirements to earn a Bachelor of Science degree. The faculty engage in the best practices of teaching, scholarship, and service to ensure that graduates serve as ethical and highly qualified leaders of civil engineering, construction and construction engineering. Students will find open doors to a dedicated and diverse faculty who are well-educated and proficient in the practical aspects of “real world” civil engineering, construction engineering, and construction.

The Civil Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, www.abet.org. The Construction program is accredited by the American Council on Construction Education (ACCE), acce-hq.org. The Construction Engineering program just completed its accreditation visit by EAC of ABET and is anticipating the final ruling in summer of 2022.  Upon successful award of accreditation, it will be retroactive to the first cohort of graduates. 


The Master of Science in Civil Engineering degree program (MSCE) at Georgia Southern prepares students with the advanced technical knowledge and skills needed to propel your career in the vital area of infrastructure.

The program serves both full-time students preparing for careers as civil engineering professionals and currently employed professionals seeking an advanced education to augment their existing skills and backgrounds. The MSCE degree program consists of technical coursework and a thesis or non-thesis track in five main areas:

  • Construction Engineering
  • Environmental/Water Resources Engineering
  • Transportation-Pavement/Geotechnical Engineering
  • Structural Engineering
  • Surveying-Geomatics

Prospective students will usually have earned a previous degree in civil engineering, construction engineering, construction (management), or environmental engineering.

Graduate students are advised by their graduate program director:
Dr. Francisco Cubas-Suazo
