The Civil Engineering Department is one of the most productive and progressive academic units in the College of Engineering. We are first in the College with respect to research expenditure per faculty. The CE Department currently has approximately 1000 students, which includes 428 undergraduates, 408 masters, and 104 Ph.D. Our research facilities and centers are outstanding and exemplary. The CE faculty, staff, and students have transformed the department to a new level of excellence in research and teaching that directly addresses local and national engineering needs by providing innovative solutions to the most challenging problems facing our nation's infrastructure.
Exciting News: The CE Department will begin enrolling students in the new Bachelor of Science program in Construction Management in Fall 2016, pending final approval of the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board.
