Prospective Students

Participants in our civil and environmental engineering graduate programs join more than 150 current students, visiting scholars, and scientists from all over the world who have gained access to our award-winning and dedicated faculty and first-rate facilities. Our Civil Infrastructure Testing and Evaluation Laboratory (CITEL), for example, is a state-of-the-art laboratory that utilizes advanced testing and computational systems. Housed within a 56,000-square-foot facility, CITEL is used to examine various issues related to the performance of the world’s civil infrastructure. Kappe Environmental Engineering Laboratories cover an area of approximately 16,000 square feet, including a 2,000 square foot laboratory at the University Wastewater Treatment Plant and a Water Quality Lab where contract analyses for research projects are performed.
