At the University of Colorado Boulder, the Department of Civil, Environmental, and Architectural Engineering (CEAE) degree programs offer careers in the planning, design, construction and management of the built environment, as well as in the interaction between the built environment and the natural environment. These fields offer careers in the planning, design, construction and management of the built environment, as well as in the interaction between the built environment and the natural environment. Civil and architectural engineers are the stewards of our environment. There are significant interdisciplinary challenges in providing the sustainability and resilience demand of our infrastructure such as buildings, highways, rapid transits, airports, bridges, retaining walls, dams, stream channels, pipelines, wastewater
treatment systems, environmental remediation and reclamation projects. Better understanding of the complex response of those systems to natural hazards such as earthquakes as well as manmade dangers is an area of national importance. The faculty and students of the CEAE department are committed to educating the next generation of engineers who can serve these needs with competence and distinction.

Our undergraduate civil and environmental engineering curriculum includes capstone design courses with a strong emphasis on professional practice and ethics, as well as indepth courses in structural and geotechnical engineering, civil engineering systems, construction, hydraulics and water resources, environmental engineering, and engineering science. These courses build upon core courses in structural mechanics and dynamics, engineering materials, soil mechanics, foundations, fluid mechanics, engineering geology, computer modeling, engineering drawing, surveying, applied mathematics and numerical methods.

At the graduate level, the CEAE department aims to produce engineers capable of advanced analysis and design to identify, prevent, and solve emerging or challenging problems in modern building design, construction, environmental and water problems. Graduate students interested in earthquake engineering research can pursue their studies in the Structural Engineering and Structural Mechanics (SESM), Geotechnical Engineering and Geomechanics (GEGM) or Engineering Science (ES) programs in the Department, and should have a B.S. degree in Civil Engineering, Engineering Mechanics, or a related discipline. Students should consult the graduate program advisor or relevant faculty to develop their curriculum plan and identify their professional interest.
