Graduate Program in Civil and Environmental Engineering

Civil and Environmental Engineering encompasses the development, application, and operation of the processes in which chemical and/or physical changes of material are involved. The work of a civil and environmental engineer is to analyze, develop, design, control, construct, and/or supervise chemical processes in research and development, pilot-scale operations, and industrial production. Emphasis is placed on the application of computer analysis to problems encountered in the above areas.

Civil and Environmental engineers having graduate degrees work in a wide range of organizations where their technical skills are needed. These may include: local, state, and federal governments; private and public corporations; and education. Chemical engineers are involved in process and plant operation, technical services groups, research and development laboratories, plant design groups, occupational and safety programs, technical sales, technical training, and technical management. Graduate education can lead to careers in other engineering and scientific disciplines as well as business and law.
