Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering
Message From Chair
We welcome you to our new CEE@UCI department e-newsletter, a quarterly communique to keep you apprised of exciting projects, faculty and student activities, and informative events.
With the New Year, the Samueli School will be launching its new strategic plan that I was privileged to help craft: “Developing Human Connections to Reach the Top 25 by 2025: A Plan for the Next Decade.” The central theme of Human Connections intersects everything we do at the school in pursuit of excellence. Educationally, we value and promote face-to-face interactions between students and teachers in addition to teamwork and hands-on experiential learning; in research, we work on interdisciplinary teams to address societal grand challenges; and as an organization, we practice respect and value a spirit of cooperation among our faculty, staff, students, alumni and industry partners.
