Our undergraduate program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org. In the 2014-2015 academic year, we had 98 undergraduate students enrolled across the sophomore, junior and senior years, and 35 students graduate with a B.S. in Civil Engineering. In the 2014-2015 academic year, we have 94 undergraduate students enrolled.

We enjoy a very collegial and supportive community in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. Our faculty and staff are highly approachable and student-centered and our students are active contributors to their learning and that of their fellow classmates. Our students have a broad range of interests and represent a diversity of countries and cultures. 

To help in maintaining this welcoming and collegial atmosphere in the department, we hold a number of fun, community building events for students and faculty throughout the academic year, such as an amusement park outing in the fall, a ski trip in the winter and a river boat trip in the spring.  We also have active student chapters for ASCE and Chi Epsilon that arrange a number of activities for the CEE student body.
