the department maintains a commitment to excellence in education, research, and
professional service while advancing the engineering science fundamentals of
the civil and environmental engineering disciplines.
the civil and environmental engineering profession is at a crossroads as it
enters the 21st century. the emphasis on massive infrastructure development,
traditionally the major concern of civil engineering, has been partially
replaced by an emphasis on infrastructure maintenance and revitalization.
societal concerns for sustainable development, energy conservation, and
security have considerably expanded the role and functions of civil
engineering. the rapid development of new materials and, particularly,
computer- and communication-based technologies for planning, design, and
management is expanding the range of alternative solutions that civil engineers
can consider and is altering the way civil engineers practice. environmental
engineering continues long-standing work on air, water, and waste treatment,
but today focuses more on restoration, waste reduction, and recycling. these
changes affect civil engineering education and research; however, the common
theme now, as in the past, remains the application of technology to meet
