What it's Like to be a CEE Student


kojo.png “To me, the Civil and Environmental Engineering department is my workplace, my study area, and where I can chat with peers or professors. I consider it my home because we foster a family here taking care of one another while helping each other succeed.”

I love taking a project course each year, as it reminds me of why I decided to study engineering in the first place. The community engagement that the CEE department fosters through events and classes means that I feel welcomed not only in my own cohort but in the department as a whole.“
