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.

Electronics Engineering

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

The UNL College of Engineering Electronics Engineering program at the Omaha Campus at PKI partners with area industries to meet the demand for engineers knowledgeable in electronic circuits and systems design.

 

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.

Fire Protection

Degrees: Associate of Science

The Fire Protection Program, offered through the University of Nebraska-Lincoln College of Engineering at The Peter Kiewit Institute, benefits students who are seeking employment or are already employed as fire protection specialists. Technological changes in the industrial and construction workplaces, as well as concerns for the environment, have increased the demand for fire protection specialists. These specialists possess a wealth of knowledge and can work in a wide variety of situations, from fighting fires and providing emergency medical care in the field to managing resources and designing fire protection equipment and systems for industry worldwide.
