The graduate programs in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) at the University of Michigan provide students with the knowledge and skills required to succeed in their chosen field.
Our department strives to be the leading educational and research institution addressing transformative advances in the understanding, design, and long-term protection of interconnected civil and environmental infrastructure systems and the natural environment. We are pioneering advances in innovative technologies that enhance the performance of the built infrastructure, minimize our impact on the natural environment, and manage complex issues at the intersection of built and natural systems. Graduate students in our department are involved with this work as members of research teams consisting of faculty and other graduate students. You can learn more about research in CEE on our research page.
CEE graduate programs rank among the top ten in the nation. Our environmental engineering graduate program is the 3rd best in the country and our civil engineering graduate program is 7th best, according to the 2018 U.S. News & World Report rankings for graduate programs.
We offer a PhD in Civil Engineering, a PhD in Environmental Engineering, and three Master of Science in Engineering (MSE) degree programs in Civil Engineering, Environmental Engineering, and Construction Engineering and Management. We also have two Master of Engineering (MEng) degrees in Structural Engineering and Construction Engineering and Management which are oriented toward professional practice, as well as some dual-degree options.
Civil and Environmental Engineering at University of Michigan has a team of faculty and staff dedicated to providing guidance to graduate students.Contact CEE »
