Welcome from the Chair

Welcome to the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering!

Thank you for your interest in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. I welcome you to learn more about our programs, our mission and our opportunities for undergraduate, master’s degree and doctoral students.

Our department began in 1889 with civil engineering, the first engineering program at UD. We developed our environmental engineering program as a response to the environmental problems that surfaced in later decades. In fall 2017, we launched our construction engineering and management program. Our long and successful history of educating future engineers is directly attributed to the instructional and research expertise of our faculty, many of whom are nationally and internationally recognized for their contributions to the engineering profession.

We welcome intellectually motivated, creative and diverse individuals to our undergraduate and graduate education and research programs.

Details of our student enrollment can be found at UD’s College of Engineering website.

Our faculty consists of 30 primary or joint appointments, and we engage professional engineers from many areas of civil and environmental engineering to enhance our programs.

Our academics and research span several areas including:

  • Civil Infastructure Systems
  • Coastal & Ocean
  • Environmental & Water
  • Geotechnical
  • Structural
  • Transportation
