The Civil & Environmental Engineering Graduate Program is educating the world’s next generation of problem solvers. Our students learn to apply their scientific and technical expertise to some of our planet’s biggest challenges, including decaying infrastructure, polluted drinking water and clogged roadways. A well-rounded core curriculum combined with opportunities for students to specialize in a subdiscipline of civil engineering gives our graduates both breadth and depth of engineering knowledge. Additionally, a departmental emphasis on creating life-long learners who can communicate about technical, social and ethical issues in engineering design prepares our graduates to work well in interdisciplinary and team environments. Our faculty are dedicated professionals whose active interest in research puts them at the forefront of current technology. Because classes are relatively small, you will get to know and interact with your professors and fellow students. The nationally ranked graduate program in civil and environmental engineering offers students the opportunity to work with well-known faculty in the areas of infrastructure resilience for extreme loading, water and environmental sustainability, pavement materials and pavement-soil interaction, and intelligent transportation systems
