Civil & Environmental Engineering

Managed by the world-renowned FAMU-FSU College of Engineering, the civil & environmental engineering program at FSU Panama City is part of a leading academic institution with excellent records of achievement in research and public service. It is designed with the students’ success in mind. With class sizes averaging fewer than 15, students benefit from a personal teaching environment and individual attention. 

Students can tailor the curriculum to their interests and career goals with two majors available — civil engineering or environmental engineering — leading to a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering. The fast-track option provides a four-semester program to degree completion. All the CEE classes are scheduled only two days a week, making the commute to campus much more cost effective and efficient. Both full and part time schedules are available. A faculty advisor will work with students to create a program of study that meets each student’s unique needs and the program culminates with a final presentation of a senior design project.

The Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET. For more information on accreditation visit the College of Engineering's objectives and student outcomes for this degree program.
