Many people look at Civil Engineering and Environmental Engineering and see separate disciplines. At Stanford University, we see links and interdependencies through which some of the most difficult and urgent problems facing mankind may be solved. We categorize CEE into three main areas: the Built Environment, Atmosphere and Energy, and the Water Environment. Exploring the relationships between these categories informs the direction of our curriculum. Some of the intersections are depicted in the diagram on this page; others will emerge as we continue down this path.

The Civil and Environmental Engineering department is committed to finding solutions to our major sustainability challenges this century, and to educating and training the leaders who will have a large impact on our profession and on society. Join us in this important endeavor.

The Structural Engineering and Geomechanics Program and the affiliated Design Construction Integration Program offer research opportunities and courses in a broad range of areas related to structural analysis and design, geomechanics, risk management, and construction of civil engineering facilities.

Areas of research emphasis include performance-based engineering, computational mechanics, design construction integration, earthquake engineering, reliability and risk analysis for hazard mitigation, sensing and health monitoring, and engineering informatics.

At the graduate level, the CEE department combines academic course work with research to prepare students in specialized areas within Civil and Environmental Engineering. But the educational experience at Stanford’s CEE department goes beyond the development of the knowledge and skills for a successful professional career. Our aim is to produce the next generation of leaders of the profession who will help solve some of the most challenging problems stemming from the interaction between the built and natural environments.
