Civil and Environmental engineers are actively engaged in all efforts to predict, minimize the effect of, and retrofit or repair the infrastructure affected by events that include global climate change, environmental pollution crises, water shortage crises, non-sustainable energy practices, transportation planning and land use. The Civil & Environmental Engineering (CEE) Department continues to address these global challenges through its didactic and research missions. Through our accredited Civil Engineering (CE) and Environmental Engineering (ENVE) programs, we educate and prepare engineers to face major societal challenges, and the CEE faculty members perform cutting-edge research to develop new solutions to global problems.
