One of my research projects this past summer was looking at a greywater treatment system for a site in Costa Rica. The project has gone from a summer assignment to a course project for my environmental engineering class this semester. 

Message from the Chair

Dr. Osama Jadaan, Chair of Department of EngineeringThe ABET accredited Civil Engineering Program at the University of Mount Union is dynamic and practical. Our program distinguishes itself by focusing on what we call the four pillars of exceptional engineering education.

The small classes at Mount Union allow for individual attention and a strong bond between the faculty and their students. Our engineering faculty at Mount Union is an outstanding group with expertise in the many fields that make up Civil Engineering such as:

  • Structural
  • Geotechnical
  • Hydraulic
  • Environmental
  • Water and waste water
  • Transportation
  • Construction engineering

The Civil Engineering program at Mount Union is housed in a newly-renovated building with state-of-the-art labs containing modern tools and equipment. Our structural and geotechnical engineering lab occupies yet another building where our students cast and test concrete and soil for their properties. Our program was designed with emphasis on graduating students with extensive hands-on experience. Last year, 100% of our interested civil engineering students participated in internships. Civil engineering students also complete a yearlong capstone senior design project that is driven by real-world and practical projects from industry, such as designing well pads for oil and gas horizontal drilling and the infrastructure associated with it.

The Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering degree is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET (EAC-ABET).

I invite you to browse our Civil Engineering website and examine our curriculum, facilities and faculty in more detail. I am confident you will come to see our program as the exceptional one we planned it to be. Schedule a visit to Mount Union.
