Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering


The department offers M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in civil engineering and in engineering. Faculty members have a special interest and research expertise in four thrust areas: hydrology and water resources, structural engineering, transportation systems and environmental engineering. The department also offers a concurrent degree program with UCI's Department of Planning, Policy and Design that awards both a master of science in civil engineering in either the transportation or environmental focus areas (MSCE) and a master of urban and regional planning (MURP).
