In honor of World Water Day, several civil and environmental engineering students share how they are making the world better by creating solutions to protect our most critical natural resource. Read more.
The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) at WPI empowers students to become global stewards of the planet and work toward a better, sustainable tomorrow. CEE’s flexible, project-based curriculum lets students explore multiple disciplines, emphasizing civic responsibility and leadership.
Working with our world-class faculty and using WPI’s state-of-the-art facilities, our students conduct research with global implications in areas like structural design, construction, infrastructure, health monitoring, sustainability, water resources, and pollution prevention and remediation. This important work moves outside our walls to Project Centers in Panama City and with Stantec Inc. as students address real-world civil engineering problems, such as maintaining sustainable infrastructure and protecting the earth’s resources.
