The Civil and Environmental Engineering department prepares students for the challenges they will face in designing solutions for society. We are leaders in innovative approaches and methods across the areas of environmental, geotechnical, materials, structural, transportation and water resources engineering.
Aligned with its land-grant mission, the department provides educational excellence, supported by research synergies, innovation and outreach. We plan, design, construct, maintain, and operate infrastructure to support civilization and sustain society.
The profession also embraces new technologies such as nanotechnology, smart materials, sensors, etc. that are introduced into civil engineering projects to improve reliability, cost effectiveness and quality of life.
The Civil and Environmental Engineering Department offers several degrees including:
- B.S. in Civil Engineering
- B.S. in Environmental Engineering (beginning Fall 2020)
- M.S. in Civil Engineering
- M.S. in Environmental Engineering
- Ph.D. in Civil Engineering
- Ph.D. in Engineering
The curriculum is designed to give students a strong mathematical, scientific and engineering background in all of the areas of the field. At the same time it provides students with an opportunity to place further emphasis on their chosen areas through technical electives.
