Civil, Architectural & Environmental Engineering

Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering

The world's increasing demand for energy, water and the need to minimize and control climate change, requires civil, architectural and environmental engineers to be at the forefront, using state-of-the-art technologies to ensure adequate food, water and mobility for generations to come. In civil, architectural and environmental engineering, students and faculty meet these challenges working side-by-side in the field and research facilities — developing more resiliant and sustainable infrastructure, transforming energy solutions and advancing water systems.
