Overview

Tufts undergraduate degrees in civil (BSCE) and environmental engineering (BSEVE) are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET. CEE also offers degrees that focus on the interdisciplinary topics of Architectural Engineering (BSE-Architectural Studies) and Environmental Health (BSE-Environmental Health).

Honors Thesis

Undergraduates interested in writing a senior honors thesis should first contact their potential research advisor for approval; we suggest doing so towards the end of the junior year.

Undergraduates interested in writing a senior honors thesis should first contact their potential research advisor for approval; we suggest doing so towards the end of the junior year. Approved students should then register for CEE 95 (fall semester) and CEE 96 (spring semester).

Internships

The Civil and Environmental Engineering internship programs provide juniors, seniors, and in some cases sophomores with the opportunity to apply various types of knowledge and skills in a field-based situation.

CEE internship programs provide juniors, seniors, and in some cases sophomores with the opportunity to apply various types of knowledge and skills in a field-based situation. Two internship programs are available: internships for academic credit and internships that award transcript notation but no academic credit. Each year a number of CEE majors find highly satisfying internships in industry and government service.

Students granted internships for academic credit must register for CEE-99 and have a faculty advisor on campus and professional-level supervision at their workplace. They must also complete and submit an internship agreement at the time they register for the course. A minimum of twelve hours work each week or 150 hours for the semester is required, and only two one-credit internships are normally accepted toward a degree. Students may develop their own field-placement programs. However, all new proposals must be submitted to the department for approval.
