People are our priority
The School of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) at the Georgia Institute of Technology is consistently ranked as one of the nation’s most prominent programs of its kind in both graduate and undergraduate education. The School was originally established in 1898, and it has become one of the largest civil and environmental engineering programs in the country, offering a broad range of academic opportunities and strategic research initiatives within the field.

CEE has 54 tenure-track faculty members who are leading experts in their respective disciplines. Our faculty are grouped by areas of affinity, based on their expertise. CEE’s affinity groups include: Construction Engineering; Environmental Engineering; Environmental Fluid Mechanics and Water Resources; Geosystems Engineering; Structural Engineering, Mechanics and Materials; and Transportation Systems Engineering.

The world is our laboratory
CEE faculty and students collaborate within and across the affinity groups as well as with other faculty and students across campus. This cross-disciplinary approach to research enables us to address the complex challenges of the 21st Century. Some of the critical areas in which our faculty work include disasterresilient infrastructure systems, water and air quality, energy production and carbon management, structural safety, bridges and transportation systems, and sustainable materials, to name a few.

The pulse of today’s world beats with technological revolution, population dynamics, environmental concerns, urban development, and more. As a result, civil and environmental engineers must be creative problem solvers to meet the challenges of the 21st Century. The programs in the CEE at Georgia Tech are based on engineering fundamentals and realworld experience. Students learn how to apply core engineering principles to complex, multidisciplinary problems in order to improve the lives of people on a global scale. CEE at Georgia Tech is a very diverse learning environment that is committed to leading the transformation of education to solve problems critical to improving quality of life.

CEE offers 7 degrees:
• Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering
• Bachelor of Science in Environmental Engineering
• Master of Science
• Master of Science in Civil Engineering
• Master of Science in Environmental Engineering
• Master of Science in Engineering Science and Mechanics
• Doctor of Philosophy

All graduate and undergraduate admissions are handled centrally
by the Georgia Tech Office of Admissions.
