Civil & Environmental Engineering Fund

The purpose of this fund is to support the priorities of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering.

Our program offers you world-class instruction in engineering design and practice, supported by our core technical areas and interdisciplinary research thrusts. We have a strategic focus on urban engineering, developing a new generation of solutions for complex urban regions. You may choose to focus your studies and deepen your area(s) of interest in one or more of the following:

  • Construction management
  • Data and systems
  • Environmental engineering
  • Geotechnical/GeoEnvironmental engineering
  • Structures
  • Transportation
  • Water, environmental, and coastal systems

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Northeastern University has a range of teaching and research strengths, anchored by several multidisciplinary, multi-institutional centers and programs that are core to the activities of the department. Building on current strengths and expanding into new and vital areas, three overarching themes are identified, including:

  • Environmental health
  • Civil infrastructure security
  • Sustainable resource engineering

We also have four premier departmental strengths in the following:

  • Simulation (both computational and experimental)
  • Smart sensing
  • Data and network science
  • Urban informatics
