Welcome From The Chair

Thanks for visiting our site. Whether you are a potential student, a current student, a graduate, or just an interested party, we hope you will sense the excitement that is Civil and Environmental Engineering at Carolina.

We have about 325 undergraduate students and about 75 graduate students. Descriptions of our programs will be found elsewhere on this site, but descriptions alone don’t tell you the whole story. You will find a faculty that is young, diverse, exceptionally well-educated, and committed to a close relationship with students. Indeed, many of our undergraduates are actively involved in our nationally prominent research activities.

The department includes five faculty members who have been National Science Foundation CAREER Award recipients; a claim few can match.

Our graduate students benefit from being at one of only 62 public universities designated as “very high research activity” by the Carnegie Foundation. Our department is a significant contributor to that status as our externally funded research activity continues to grow.

International activities and opportunities continue to expand. Visiting professors and research scholars attest to the status of our programs, and our students, including undergraduates, take advantage of opportunities that send them to countries all around the world.

A wide variety of activities and organizations spread across the department, the college and the university that both tempt and satisfy the myriad of interests and curiosities of our students. So much to learn, so much to do. Find yourself at Carolina.
