We focus on design and teamwork and offer a flexible, hands-on curriculum featuring interdisciplinary project courses with Civil Engineering and Environmental Engineering students working together.

As a CEE student, you will work with Andrea Francioni Rooney for your academic advising. You will also have the opportunity to choose a faculty mentor at the end of your sophomore year and will meet with your mentor at least once a semester to discuss research, career, and CEE specialty area interests.

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.“
