About Us

Engineers in all fields are in high demand in the Portland metropolitan area. PSU graduates of the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering usually go directly to work in their chosen field in consulting firms or government agencies.

Fariborz Maseeh College of Engineering and Computer SciencePortland State University’s Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering was noted in a recent publication of the Structural Engineering Institute, a member Institute of the American Society of Civil Engineers, as offering a complete curriculum in Structural Engineering education. Educators and practitioners of structural engineering around the country have been working since 1999 to identify a national standard for the core curriculum and necessary content that would qualify a school as having a “high-quality program of structural engineering education” [STRUCTURE magazine, April 2007]. When the requirements were established in 2004, engineering schools across the country were surveyed for compliance. The PSU program, offered through the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, was one of only 47 out of 122 schools surveyed to meet the standard. This notoriety is largely the result of work by the faculty to develop comprehensive courses for undergraduates that expose them to the necessary topics in the structural engineering field.
