The department focuses on four major areas: (1) new technologies for natural disaster prevention, (2) environmental conservation, (3) green engineering, and (4) system engineering. The primary goal of the department is to educate students in the principles and methods essential to the practice and advancement of civil and environmental engineering. We also strive to lay the future path for this combined discipline. By continually developing new knowledge and fostering intelligent use of limited resources, our students will become successful practitioners, innovators, and leaders to build a high quality society.
