Here is How We Make the Future.

The Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental engineering is a vibrant engine for generating the knowledge, tools and leadership needed to address society’s most challenging problems in the natural and built environments. Our researchers collaborate to enhance the world through civil and environmental engineering, but also through emerging areas like fire and wind engineering and engineering sustainability.
