Undergraduate Education

Civil engineers build societies, from the landmarks that define who we are to the hidden infrastructure essential to our quality of life. Projects such as the Hoover Dam, the Tappen Zee Bridge, Boston's 'Big Dig,' the interstate highway system, and New York City's water supply system illustrate the diversity, scale, grandeur, and functionality that is civil engineering.

Environmental engineers work at the interface of society and the environment, striving to protect both human and ecosystem health. Among the top priorities of the profession are the delivery of safe water to drink and clean air to breathe, and the restoration of water quality in the Great Lakes, the Hudson River and natural water systems throughout the nation.
