ATLSS Real-Time Multi-Directional Testing Facility

The department of civil and environmental engineering (CEE) at Lehigh University offers internationally recognized education and research programs in structural, environmental, geotechnical and water resources engineering.

Civil engineers design and manage large-scale projects characterized by great size, complexity, longevity and cost. Society relies and commerce thrives upon the systems and structures they create—from buildings and the plants that power them to the roads, bridges, tunnels and waterways that connect it all.

Lehigh students receive rigorous training in the fundamentals of the physical sciences, mathematics, and scientific methods, coupled with complementary studies in the humanities and social sciences.They acquire critical thinking and problem-solving skills, develop their powers of analysis and design, learn how to communicate effectively, and work as part of a team. And they graduate with broad technical knowledge and a strong sense of how best to apply it in a globalized society.

Students come to Lehigh to work in close collaboration with a renowned faculty, to conduct innovative research in exceptionally equipped labs, and to enjoy the support of industry partners who value the Lehigh educational experience and the caliber of graduates it produces.
