At the Civil and Environmental Engineering program of Rutgers University, students work with respected engineers and researchers to serve New Jersey and the nation by contributing to the development of a more sustainable economy and environment.


Why Rutgers?

The full-time faculty members of the Civil and Environmental Engineering program of Rutgers University, many of whom serve on advisory councils and local, state, and federal commissions, are leaders in their fields. Their research has been recognized in the areas of infrastructure evaluation and monitoring, intelligent transportation systems, transportation design and planning, geotechnical and geoenvironmental engineering, pavement engineering, construction management, water resources management, and air pollution monitoring and control.

Technological advances including a robot that examines bridge surfaces using sophisticated tools and a 3-D geospatial mapping instrument, used most recently to assess the damage from Superstorm Sandy, are among the innovations that make Rutgers an exciting place to learn.

The Department works closely with the Rutgers Center for Advanced Infrastructure and Transportation (CAIT) to develop sounder infrastructure  in terms of safety, security, environmental impact, sustainability, mobility, and efficiency.

During their last two years of study, students may select from fives areas of concentration, including structural, geotechnical and transportation engineering, water resources and environmental engineering and construction management. Students may also opt to pursue one of our five-year programs to earn a BA/MBA degree or BA/BS degree in civil engineering and a liberal arts and science major.
