Welcome to Duke CEE

Duke’s Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering encompasses an extraordinary team of faculty conducting research on topics such as the environmental effects of nanotechnology, engineered microbial systems, water resources, hydrometeorology, computational mechanics, geomechanical modeling and characterization and more.

Civil and environmental engineers are being looked to for solutions to climate change; a reinvention of our transportation system; ways to modernize and secure our infrastructure; sustainable ways to meet the food, water, and hygiene needs of the developing world; and truly workable ideas for sustainable energy – just to name a few. Not since the efforts to pull the country from the depths of the Great Depression has there been such a clear and sustained call for leadership by the profession of civil and environmental engineers.

Our department offers Bachelor of Science degrees with majors in civil engineering (with study tracks in structural engineering or environmental engineering and water resource) and environmental engineering; and undergraduate certificates in architectural engineering, and energy and the environment studies. We offer industry-focused Master of Engineering programs on either civil or environmental engineering, and a research-focused Master of Science and doctoral program. Our students are sought after for positions in industry, government, non-profits and academia.
