From the roads we drive on to the water we drink, civil and environmental engineers play an essential and transformational role in society. Our mission is to change the world through the creation, application and transfer of civil, environmental and geological engineering knowledge.
Aging infrastructure. Climate change. Clean water and air. Natural hazards. Energy. These are just a few of the grand challenges facing civil and environmental engineers, and UW-Madison is leading the way toward sustainable solutions.
Our distinguished faculty are leading innovative research that impacts earth, air and water resources; energy systems; infrastructure and more around the world.
