Civil and Environmental Engineering Research

The Civil and Environmental Engineering faculty are active in many diverse areas of research, including:

  • Transportation engineering and planning
  • Structural analysis and design
  • Earthquake engineering
  • Treatment and supply of drinking water
  • Biogeochemical redox processes
  • Mathematical modeling of fate and transport processes in the subsurface
  • Modeling microbial kinetics
  • Reactive solute transport in heterogeneous media
  • Quantitative geochemistry
  • Pollution prevention
  • Industrial waste treatment

The Department’s research covers these and other areas vital to the field. Undergraduate and graduate students are integral to the research culture of the Department. Faculty and student interactions through research act synergistically to mutually drive each other forward.
