Want to major in civil engineering with an emphasis in environmental engineering and begin building your future? You’ll benefit from declaring your major freshman year, when the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering curriculum begins to differ from other engineering programs.
Undergraduate Civil Engineering
Graduate Civil Engineering
Graduate-level study in civil engineering with an emphasis on environmental engineering prepares you to explore more closely the challenges of building infrastructure and systems for the future.
Our traditional curriculum in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering will build on a strong foundation of math and science while allowing you to specialize in an area of interest to you, such as environmental, structural, geotechnical, transportation or water resources engineering.
Our programs combine this specialized knowledge with the cross-disciplinary understanding required to effectively collaborate and communicate highly technical ideas. Some research specialties our faculty study include asphalt sensor technology to better maintain highway systems and cleaning up coal mine seepage to turn its toxins into high-quality artists’ paint, and they do it with the support of undergraduate and graduate student researchers. Whether you want to develop the next generation of durable highways or build safer bridges, a Russ College civil engineering degree program, with a special focus on environmental engineering, helps you develop the technical strengths and leadership ability you’ll need to achieve your goals.
