The University of Nebraska–Lincoln College of Engineering offers seven academic programs at The Peter Kiewit Institute in Omaha.

Civil Engineering

Degrees: Bachelor of Science, Master of Science, Master of Engineering, and Ph.D.

The Department of Civil Engineering works collaboratively for undergraduate and graduate education, research and service to the state, the nation and the civil engineering profession. The UNL Civil Engineering program is offered in two locations: the City Campus in Lincoln and the Omaha Campus at The Peter Kiewit Institute. Civil engineers plan, build, and manage the infrastructure that underpins society and preserves the environment. They grapple with nearly every aspect of everyday life -- overcrowded roads, obsolete bridges, crowded urban areas, contaminated water, floods, and airports and other vital facilities.

Computer Engineering

Degrees: Bachelor of Science, Master of Science, Master of Engineering, and Ph.D.

Computer Engineering is offered both at the Omaha Campus at The Peter Kiewit Institute and the UNL City Campus in Lincoln. In Omaha, the program emphasizes design, development, applications and management in the computer industries.

Electrical Engineering

Degrees: Bachelor of Science, Master of Science, Master of Engineering, and Ph.D.

Electrical engineers helped invent the computer, satellite communications, cellular phones, microchips and solar panels...to name just a few technological advances. In UNL's Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering, you'll learn to make further remarkable contributions to our world.

You'll join a challenging academic program with opportunities to study abroad, get involved in student clubs and organizations, and work side-by-side with our experienced faculty on their research. You'll learn engineering basics and can specialize in a specific area of interest, gaining skills and knowledge that future employers notice and value.

For your career, you could someday work for industrial organizations, public and private utilities, the communications and computer industry, governmental and education institutions, and consulting engineering firms.

This major is offered in Lincoln and in Omaha (on our campus at PKI).

 

The Durham School of Architectural Engineering and Construction

 

Architectural Engineering

Degrees: Bachelor of Science, Master of Architectural Engineering, Master of Science, Master of Engineering, and Ph.D.

A program of The Charles W. Durham School of Architectural Engineering and Construction. Demand for architectural engineering graduates is very high, especially as there are only 15 programs in the country, while there are thousands of architectural engineering design firms. The college offers a five-year program leading to a Bachelor of Science and a Master of Architectural Engineering degree. Architectural Engineering is accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET).

Construction Engineering

Degrees: Bachelor of Science, Master of Science in Construction, Master of Engineering in Construction, and Ph.D. in Construction

A program of The Charles W. Durham School of Architectural Engineering and Construction. Construction Engineering is offered by the UNL College of Engineering on the Omaha Campus at PKI and the Lincoln City Campus. At The Peter Kiewit Institute, the building design facilitates construction education by exposing systems and structures to providing a living lab environment.

Construction Management

Degrees: Bachelor of Science, Master of Science in Construction, Master of Engineering in Construction, and Ph.D. in Construction

A program of The Charles W. Durham School of Architectural Engineering and Construction. Construction Management is offered by the UNL College of Engineering on the Omaha Campus at PKI and the Lincoln City Campus. At The Peter Kiewit Institute, the building design facilitates construction education by exposing systems and structures to providing a living lab environment.
