The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Utah has one of the nation’s most rapidly growing departments and faculty. “U” engineers are trained in professional communications, project management and their technical discipline with opportunities to seek advanced degrees in engineering, law, business, or medicine. The department and local industry offer paid internships, scholarships and employment opportunities to more than 80% of CvEEN students.
Civil and environmental engineering is ideal for those with vision and analytic skills. Engineers are challenged to imagine new ways to support the needs of business, industry, public agencies, and nations. They innovatively conserve natural resources, create energy efficient systems, and integrate large structures into the natural environment by:
- Designing and building iconic skyscrapers and landmarks
- Cleaning drinking water for millions worldwide
- Protecting the environment and natural resources
- Cleaning the nation’s air, water, and polluted industrial sites
- Designing more efficient transportation systems
- Protecting people from earthquakes and natural disasters
