Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering
Message From Chair
Happy New Year and welcome to 2021! Last year was a consequential one, necessitating adaptation and growth in every aspect of society, including in the CEE department. Through it all, our students, faculty, staff and alumni have demonstrated their leadership, resilience and deep commitment to supporting the innovative education and cutting-edge research that are the hallmarks of our department.
Making the health and safety of our entire community our highest priority, our dedicated faculty worked hard to completely transform our curriculum for online instruction. Students have responded with continued productivity, a testament to the rigors of a UC education. Last summer, as our nation turned its attention to the critical need to address racial injustice, CEE leadership, faculty, staff and students took a strong stand in supporting the Black Lives Matter movement. We work hard to ensure that our education and our research contribute to building a just and equitable society.
