Many people look at Civil Engineering and Environmental Engineering and see separate disciplines. At Stanford, we see links and interdependencies through which some of the most difficult and urgent problems facing mankind may be solved.
The department has six programs :
ReNUWIt is a interdisciplinary, multi-institution research center whose goal is to change the ways in which we manage urban water. Our vision is of safe, sustainable urban water infrastructures enabled by technological advances in natural and engineered systems, and informed by a deeper understanding of institutional frameworks.
The John A. Blume Earthquake Engineering Center is devoted to the advancement of research, education and practice in earthquake engineering. Through its activities, the Blume Center contributes to the understanding of earthquakes and their effects on structures.
The CIFE mission is to be the world's premier academic research center for Virtual Design and Construction of Architecture - Engineering - Construction (AEC) industry projects ... to support exceptionally reliable engineering and management practices to plan, design, construct and operate sustainable facilities.
The Center for Sustainable Development and Global Competitiveness at Stanford University engages in research and educational programs that integrate business development strategies with leadership practices that will ensure enterprise growth and success within a healthy and sustainable natural environment.
