Areas of Research

Civil Engineering is global, and the best research is happening at its boundaries with disciplines such as natural sciences, law, and social sciences. These two facts define our primary mission as a department: be a global leader in research to advance the state of the profession, widen our horizons and encompass interdisciplinary research, and prepare students for success in their careers so that they become the next generation of academic and industry leaders.

Present areas of research include:

  • Environmental Engineering
  • Geotechnical Engineering
  • Structural Engineering
  • Transportation Engineering
  • Water Resources Engineering
  • Multidisciplinary research areas: Disaster Management, Remote Sensing and GIS, Smart Agricultural Water Management, Building Physics/Energy Efficiency
