The Civil and Environmental Engineering Department at Carnegie Mellon offers a unique interdisciplinary program that enables students to develop imaginative solutions to real world engineering problems. With access to cutting-edge research and technology, high achieving, energetic and approachable faculty members, and an innovative and flexible curriculum, we consistently rank among the top ten programs by US News and World Report.
Students are able to develop an individually focused program with their faculty advisors, and are encouraged to pursue studies in line with their professional interests and goals. These tailored programs may be directed toward more fundamental engineering science, or more applied engineering design or development, depending on the career goals of the individual student. We also encourage students from a variety of educational backgrounds to pursue graduate study in our department.
