CE + Business

Whether they are increasing the safety of buildings, ensuring our water systems are functional and clean, or improving the design of transportation systems, civil engineers create and maintain much of our infrastructure. If you are passionate about making a positive impact on the physical world, you’ll want to consider the Civil Engineering + Business track.

Civil Engineering is a broad discipline with numerous career opportunities. Maybe you’ll want to advance structural seismic safety standards, adapt our built or natural environment for the challenges of climate change, improve air quality or design better bridges.

Whatever direction you take, combining your technical expertise with leadership, communication and business skills will help you be fully prepared to address modern engineering challenges. The M.E.T. Civil Engineering + Business track brings you the best of both worlds through the UC Berkeley Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering and the Haas School of Business, both consistently ranked in the top three nationwide.

In four years, your interdisciplinary program will connect you to world-renowned faculty and rigorous CE and business coursework. You’ll receive a solid STEM foundation and exposure to pioneering engineering concepts, while gaining important business skills in finance, leadership, accounting and economic analysis.

Numerous opportunities for undergraduate research and hands-on learning are also available through CE labs and Berkeley competitions and clubs, while internships in the innovative San Francisco Bay Area will help you build professional connections.

A sample curriculum plan for the Civil Engineering + Business program is shown below. Your own course of study will depend on your pre-college preparation, including AP course credits and other individual circumstances. For more information on the Civil Engineering + Business degree program and requirements view the suggested plan of study below.
