Welcome from DUS

Notre Dame is a wonderful place to develop intellectually, professionally, personally, and spiritually.  There is a lot happening in the Civil and Environmental Engineering and Earth Sciences (CEEES) Department, and we would like to share our enthusiasm of the civil and environmental engineering and earth sciences professions with you. It is a great time to be getting a degree in one of the CEEES programs as the Bureau of Labor Statistics shows growth of 15% and greater for each of these professions over the next several years. Civil and environmental engineering professionals serve society through the design, construction, maintenance and rehabilitation of infrastructure and through protecting the environment, improving public health, and treating air and water pollution on local and global scales to ensure a high standard of living.  Earth scientists quantify the geologic processes that affect the human environment by understanding the chemistry and physics of the Earth.  

As a student in the CEEES Department, you will have the opportunity to be a part of a hands-on undergraduate experience that involves in-depth field trips, undergraduate research programs, civil engineering service projects, and national and regional undergraduate project competitions that will afford you the ability to see what civil and environmental engineering and earth sciences is all about.

For in-depth information about our programs and the career paths some of our recent alumni have taken go to the following web pages: http://ceees.nd.edu/bigquestions and http://ceees.nd.edu/education/undergraduate-program. Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions I can help you answer (ceeesdus@nd.edu).
