About Us

The civil engineering profession is responsible for designing, building, operating and maintaining the physical infrastructure and protecting the natural environment that together support human society in an economically and environmentally sustainable manner. 

The need to predict and mitigate the impact of complex human- and nature-induced stresses on large-scale, geographically-distributed systems has never been more evident than now. These challenges and inevitable societal changes result in a need to develop and adopt new technologies and improved efficiency into the infrastructure. 

CEE, with its multidisciplinary expertise within the department coupled with its historical outreach to other departments and campuses has always played a significant role in designing, constructing, managing, and sustaining these complex systems, via research, education, and professional service.
