What Do Civil and Environmental Engineers do?

Civil Engineers

Civil engineering is the oldest and broadest engineering field. Civil engineers design, build and manage the built environment, including buildings, roads, bridges, airports, ports, energy and water systems.

Our civil engineering program gives you knowledge in four subfields of civil engineering:

  • Environmental engineering
  • Geotechnical engineering
  • Structural engineering
  • Transportation engineering

See Civil Engineering Highlights

Environmental Engineers

Environmental engineers use science and engineering to solve environmental problems. They improve lives by designing and building processes to clean and protect the air, water and land.

Our environmental engineering program is one of the most interdisciplinary programs in the university. You will learn from civil engineers, environmental engineers, chemical engineers, environmental scientists and economists to create the skills sets you need to solve complex problems.
