One Thousand Days Transformed - The Campaign for Cedarville
The New Civil Engineering Building to Be Built on Campus

Expanding Engineering Impact

Civil Engineering Center

Cedarville University enrolled its first class of civil engineering students in fall 2018, joining our other highly successful School of Engineering and Computer Science programs in electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, computer engineering, and computer science. Planned for 10 students to start, in the first year more than 30 students chose the new major.

Civil engineering continues the mission of Cedarville, to prepare professionals who bring excellence to their field and make an impact for the Gospel. Civil engineers are game changers for communities and nations, initiating strategic infrastructure solutions — good roads, sound bridges, clean water — to support human flourishing. By showing love to those in less developed communities and serving them well, doors open for the Gospel. A third of our current civil engineering students plan to engage in missions after graduation.

Completed in summer 2020, the 20,806-square-foot Civil Engineering Center houses two classrooms, nine laboratories, and five project labs, as well as six faculty offices. It is an inviting environment in which students can collaborate, study, and hone their knowledge
