Although the Department is not divided formally into sections, the fields of study and research can be grouped into four main areas: environmental engineering and water resources management, fluid mechanics and hydraulic engineering, geotechnical and geoenvironmental engineering, as well as structural engineering and construction materials. Selected courses are also available in the area of transportation engineering. Descriptions of the topics of research and facilities in the four major areas are presented under each section:

What is Civil Engineering?
Civil engineers use and develop modern technology to meet the needs of our changing society. Concerns for environmental quality, energy conservation, infrastructure restoration and public safety now shape the role of civil engineers. The introduction of advanced materials, computer-aided and communication-based technologies for planning, design and management is changing the way civil engineers practice.
