Civil Engineering

Civil engineers develop essential infrastructure, from transit systems to offshore structures to space satellites. Benefit from research opportunities early on in your education, in projects such as the development of a city bike lane network and analysis of asphalt classification systems, both funded by the Texas Department of Transportation.

A Great Return on Your Investment

With an average first-year salary of $58,842, our graduates are among the highest compensated of all civil engineering alumni in the UT System, according to seekUT. Combined with our modest tuition rate, this yields a favorable return on your educational investment.

“I looked at University of Texas schools and UT Tyler won out. The tuition is affordable, the campus is beautiful and the civil engineering program is exceptional. It’s a big campus, but in civil engineering we’re like a family and our professors really look out for us.”
