Civil & Environmental Engineering
Civil and Environmental Engineering encompasses an extremely diverse range of expertise in engineering design and construction, including bridges and buildings, roadways, highways, rapid transit alternatives, processes to clean our drinking water and our waste-water and the foundations on which all structures stand.

The CEE Department is currently conducting a search for an Assistant Professor (Tenure Track) in Geotechnical Engineering.  Please follow that link to apply today.  The position is open until filled.


The Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) Department is a dynamic program where state-of-the-art laboratories and sustainability are a primary focus. Our faculty specializes in research in the following areas:

  • Transportation Engineering
  • Structural Engineering
  • Environmental and Water Resources Engineering
  • Geotechnical Engineering

The department offers undergraduate degrees in Civil Engineering and Environmental Engineering, as well as MS, MEng, and PhD degrees in Civil and Environmental Engineering.

The undergraduate Civil Engineering program incorporates elements from transportation engineering, structural engineering, geotechnical engineering and environmental/water resources engineering.

The undergraduate Environmental Engineering degree program is focused more strictly on environmental concerns and relies on coursework within the Department as well as broad-based in the sciences: environmental science, chemistry, biology, geology, and physics.

Within the department we encourage undergraduate research and provide the opportunity for involvement in student organizations such as the American Society of Civil Engineering, Engineers Without Borders, and the Society of Women Engineers. In addition to these groups, we recognize achievement of our students through the Tau Beta Pi national engineering honor society, the Chi Epsilon Civil Engineering honor society, and an honors program within the department that recognizes high achieving students and pairs them with faculty to perform a senior research project.

The department strives for excellence in teaching, research and community service and we are committed to making your academic experience with us a success.
