When you choose an accredited program, you are choosing wisely.
Accreditation assures that a program has met quality standards set by the profession. To employers and graduate schools, as well as licensure, certification, and registration boards, graduation from an accredited program signifies adequate preparation for entry into the profession. Many of these groups require graduation from an accredited program as a minimum qualification.
The B.S. in Civil Engineering program at South Dakota State University is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, Inc. (ABET) http://www.abet.org
Undergraduate students in the B.S. in Civil Engineering program are assigned academic advisors who will provide guidance regarding academic progress and career options. During their freshmen or first year, all civil engineering students are advised by a professional advisor. Students with sophomore, junior or senior standing are advised by civil engineering faculty members. Academic advisors use an Advising Guidesheet for each student to select the appropriate coursework for subsequent academic years and to monitor the student's progress toward graduation.
