The CEE undergraduate programs at the University of Michigan are traditional four-year programs of study resulting in Bachelor of Science in Engineering degrees in either Civil Engineering (BSE CE) or Environmental Engineering (BSE EnvE). Both the degree of Bachelor of Science in Engineering (BSE) in Civil Engineering and the degree of Bachelor of Science in Engineering (BSE) in Environmental Engineering are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET. BSE students in CEE will emerge with a strong technical foundation as well as an understanding of how societal injustice has manifested in engineering, and our responsibilities as engineers to promote Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) in our communities.
There is also an option to earn a Minor in Civil Engineering or a Minor in Environmental Engineering. Students in both degree programs receive a broad-based education and the rigorous preparation to succeed in a variety of careers and graduate fields within engineering and beyond.
- Construction Engineering and Management
- Environmental Engineering
- Geotechnical Engineering
- Hydraulics and Hydrological Engineering
- Materials Engineering
- Structural Engineering
- Water Quality and Health
- Earth Systems
- Environmental Fluid Dynamics
- Environmental Policy and Sustainable Infrastructure
Sequential Undergraduate/Graduate Studies (SUGS)
Students who do well in our undergraduate program are encouraged to consider graduate study. The SUGS program is available for students who graduate with a GPA of 3.5 and above. The program allows students to complete a master’s degree in Civil or Environmental Engineering in one additional year by applying their undergraduate technical electives to both the bachelor’s and master’s degrees.
