Civil Engineering is concerned with planning, designing, constructing, and operating various physical works; developing and utilizing natural resources in an environmentally sound manner; providing the infrastructure which supports the highest quality of life in the history of the world.Environmental Engineering use principles of engineering, chemistry, and biology to develop technical solutions to provide safe water, sanitation and clean air.
The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering offers ME, MS and PhD degrees. These graduate degrees provide a more focused academic experience within an area of Geotechnical, Environmental, Structural, Transportation, Hydraulics and Water Resource Engineering. Students are provided the opportunity to work on cutting edge research with faculty who are experts in their field.
