Building a Stronger, Sustainable Future

Students and faculty in the department of Civil & Environmental Engineering (CEE) collaborate within world-class research facilities to investigate new sources of energy, discover safer and more sustainable ways to build and maintain buildings and infrastructure, and protect the natural world through reducing environmental impact and keeping contaminants out of our water and soil.

The structures and natural resources around us serve as teachers and reminders of the importance of conservation and environmental sustainability. Our research touches on the very infrastructure of society.
