Syracuse University’s Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering helps students gain the skills they need to excel in environmental, geotechnical, materials, hydraulics, structural, transportation, and water resources engineering.
Our ABET-accredited academic programs are continuously evolving to reflect the changes in technological innovation and the world we live in. Our students are given an in-depth understanding of the fundamentals and have the opportunity to pursue electives and minors that make our students some of the most sought after graduates nationwide. Students that complete our programs have found careers in companies like the Barnard Construction, Environmental Protection Agency, and Honeywell, built successful startups, and pursued master’s and doctoral degrees at SU and other prestigious universities and colleges.
Our department provides numerous opportunities for undergraduate research. In addition to being a tremendous learning experience, these activities often lead to conference or journal publication, and have led our students to win regional and national competitions for their work.
