Academics & Admission
Students in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering make a lasting impact in the world as they launch careers which design and apply innovative solutions fostering sustainability in the natural and built environments.
The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering offers three graduate degree programs: master’s, doctoral, and degree of Engineer. With four distinct focus areas, the leading purpose of our master’s program is to provide students with the knowledge and skills necessary for a professional career or doctoral studies.
The built and natural environments are interdependent and inseparable, requiring that the next generation of civil and environmental engineers work collaboratively as never before. We offer undergraduate majors in Environmental Systems Engineering, Architectural Design, Atmosphere/Energy and Civil Engineering.
