At UVA Engineering, our mission is to prepare engineers to be leaders in their fields.
And the need for engineering leaders to help solve society's greatest challenges could not be more urgent. Professionals with advanced degrees in civil engineering from the University of Virginia, one of the world's most respected universities for research and education, are in especially high demand.
Civil engineers apply their expertise to a wide variety of challenges in a large number of sectors. UVA civil engineers, for example, are working on:
- Intelligent and resilient buildings and infrastructure
- Solutions to help communities combat the effects of climate change and develop environmental resilience
- Reliable, safe, secure autonomous vehicles
Thanks to UVA Engineering's extensive alumni network and connections with corporations, government agencies, other universities and entities such as the UVA Center for Transportation Studies, our graduate students have access to multiple pathways to develop their careers.
