Civil engineering is the segment of the engineering profession that provides for the basic needs of humanity. Civil engineers focus on both the built and natural environments through the planning, design, construction, and operation of building and housing
systems, commercial and industrial facilities, transportation systems, and systems for the protection and use of air, water, land, and ecological resources. Civil engineers also provide for the protection of people and our infrastructure from natural disasters.

Earning your undergraduate or graduate engineering degree from the Department of Civil, Architectural, and Environmental Engineering (CAEE) at the University of Texas at Austin means you will be part of a top-ranked department in one of the largest and most-prestigious public universities in the United States. A degree from CAEE offers a broad spectrum of employment opportunities, in both the public and the private sectors, within the United States and abroad. These opportunities exist in both technical and management positions, within organizations of varying sizes, which deal with a dizzying array of issues associated with both engineered and natural systems. Many of the most critical problems facing our country and the globe are related to deteriorating infrastructure, the need for new kinds of infrastructure, and the need to build sustainable structures and systems. So, civil, architectural, and environmental engineers have the opportunity to make more of a difference in the world than ever before.

Many of the critical problems facing our country and the world are related to the need to address deteriorating infrastructure, the need to develop new kinds of infrastructure, and the need to build sustainable structures and systems. The world’s increasing need for energy and water, coupled with the need to minimize and control climate change, means that civil, architectural, and environmental engineers will be at the forefront of ensuring adequate food, water, and mobility for generations to come. Solving these critical problems means using state-of-the-art technologies to produce new materials, systems, and processes. The CAEE department is preparing future engineers to meet
these challenges.

We provide degree programs for undergraduate and graduate students that combine excellence in teaching and research with a strong focus on engineering applications and design. Awardwinning faculty and students work together to facilitate the understanding and use of new ideas, technologies, and practices to improve the world in which we all live.
