The School of Engineering and Applied Science will soon be launching a new department.
Civil and Environmental Engineering: Delivering Systems that Strengthen Communities and Enhance Quality of Life
Whether the challenge is creating more efficient transportation, coping with rising sea levels, modernizing the built environment or providing clean water, our students, faculty and staff create resilient systems that meet the needs of our communities. In the process, we push beyond the limits of current technology, from cyber-physical systems for smart cities to nanotechnology for low-cost water purification. We also ensure our solutions meet community needs by actively collaborating across disciplines, including public policy, business, public health and architecture.
