Explore Civil and Environmental Engineering and Earth Sciences
Our faculty, graduate, and undergraduate students work on some of the world’s most challenging issues, including natural and manmade hazards; civil infrastructure; the environment; energy; water; and earth systems.
Students at all levels have opportunities to engage in research with significant practical and societal impact.
We offer undergraduate programs in Civil Engineering; Environmental Earth Sciences; and Environmental Engineering. As a student in one of these programs, you’ll be a part of a hands-on experience that involves field trips, undergraduate research, service projects, and national and regional project competitions.
Field trips to places ranging from New Orleans and New York to the Midwest or Southwest U.S. and international locations (such as the Galapagos Islands) offer a first-hand look into your field of study and opportunities to meet and make connections with professionals in your field.
