VISION

QuadGroupPhoto 

In modern society Civil and Environmental Engineers serve as master builders, environmental stewards, and integrators of solutions to complex challenges to sustain and improve the built and natural environment so that later generations will have an ever improving quality of life.  

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Rice University will enhance the sustainability of infrastructure systems and supporting natural resources that are challenged by societal and environmental changes and extreme events.  These critical and emerging challenges will be addressed through innovations to improve infrastructure resilience and the efficiency of water and energy use; integration of complex system analysis to enhance risk assessment and mitigation; and multidisciplinary solutions for infrastructure renewal.   

From the research laboratories to the classrooms and beyond, we will train a new generation of civil and environmental engineering leaders with the knowledge of current best practices and the creative agility to advance the field into the future.
