Graduate Program

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) is an interdisciplinary department that provides flexible and rigorous training within the intellectually rich environment of our highly ranked university. Through full and part-time options, CEE graduate programs train students as experts in the natural and built environment, bringing together the fields of environmental health, engineering mechanics, structural, geosystems, and water resources engineering to address key societal issues related to how and where we live, work, and interact.

Crucially, our programs combine classroom teaching with hands-on learning experiences and close mentoring to help our students gain the knowledge and tools to become professional engineers and/or pursue careers in a variety of traditional and emerging fields, including those related to infrastructure, environmental and water resources engineering, environmental hazards, sustainability, climate change, and data analytics.

Our graduate programs, which include Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.), Master's of Science (M.S.), and certificate programs, are well-suited to students from a variety of backgrounds, including those from non-engineering fields.
