Engineering - Civil Engineering

Civil engineers work in the oldest branch of engineering.  From the day the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock, civil engineers have been busy designing roads, bridges, sewage systems, and buildings—making it possible for the rest of us to work and travel in safety.

The focus in all engineering tracks is developing sound problem-solving techniques. The laboratory is your practice ground as you test construction materials and do surveying work.

The VU Advantage         
Vincennes University offers the first two years of a bachelor’s degree in agricultural, biomedical, food process, chemical, civil, electrical, and mechanical engineering.  All programs are designed to transfer to Purdue University and require high-level mathematics proficiency.

 Advantages to beginning your studies at VU include:

  • Hands-on experience.
  • The nurturing of your fundamental skills, designed to prepare you for advanced study.
  • The use of laboratory equipment normally reserved for students at the junior or senior level.
  • The fact that customarily, lab sections are taught by the same faculty who teach the lecture sections, ensuring consistent instruction and encouraging relationship building with professors.

At Vincennes University, fundamental engineering skills are nurtured to prepare you for advanced study.  It’s this personalized attention that can make the difference in your academic success.
