About the Department

The Civil and Environmental Engineering Department is one of six departments in the College of Engineering and Technology and is located in Kaufman Hall. At the undergraduate level, the Department offers an ABET accredited Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in Civil Engineering and enrolls 250 students.

At the graduate level the Department offers Master of Engineering (M.E.), Master of Science (M.S.) in Civil Engineering and in Environmental Engineering, and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) and Doctor of Engineering (D.Eng.) degrees in Civil and Environmental Engineering and it enrolls more than 100 students. The graduate programs are structured to accommodate both the full-time and part-time students. The available specialty areas are coastal, geotechnical, structural, and water resources, transportation engineering in Civil engineering and a variety of sub-fields in Environmental engineering.

There are 12 full-time faculty in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. All hold doctoral degrees. Many are widely recognized nationally and internationally for their scholarly activities.

Graduate

The CEE graduate programs are structured to accommodate both full-time and part-time students. Most of the graduate courses are offered in the evenings, and many are offered as televised and video-streamed courses. The available specialty areas are: coastal, geotechnical, structural, transportation, and water resources engineering in Civil Engineering, and a variety of sub-fields in Environmental Engineering.
