Encompassing two of the School’s oldest and most reputable programs, the Civil & Environmental Engineering Department has grown and adapted throughout the years to meet the needs of our changing world. Today, it is one of the largest departments on campus and offers a wide breadth of engineering courses that tackle important issues from the safety of our city’s infrastructure to ensuring that everyone has access to clean water.
The civil and environmental engineering programs are highlighted by hands-on learning in the labs, at internships and on-site at some of the area’s latest and greatest engineering marvels, including the World Trade Center, the Second Avenue Subway and the New NY Bridge. In fact, many of our alumni are the engineers responsible for these cutting-edge projects. As a student, you have access to these professionals through on-campus recruitment events, special lectures and our Mentor Program.
