Environmental Engineering Seminar Series

As part of the graduate seminar series, the CSEE Department welcomes different speakers from academia throughout the spring and fall semesters to present their work. The goal of the seminar series is to give our students and faculty an opportunity to learn more about current cutting edge research and challenging applications in environmental and water resources engineering.
