Undergraduate Admissions

These topics have likely captured your imagination for years: design, structural mechanics, building materials, the environment. You may have been captivated since you were young by soaring architecture, trussed bridges, cars and highways.

Now is your chance to channel that passion into an engineering education—and your future career. Your undergraduate experience at UIC Engineering will provide a first-class foundation for your future in civil engineering and related disciplines.

Admission to our undergraduate programs is handled through UIC’s main undergraduate admissions office, so we encourage you to visit its site if you have not already done so. If you are looking for information on how and when to apply, details on financial aid, and a link to the online application, that is where you will find it.

In the meanwhile, we invite you explore this department website to learn more about studying civil engineering at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
