Civil & Environmental Engineering – Facilities & Resources

The Civil & Environmental Engineering programs teach principles of science and engineering and prepare students for jobs in public works.

Facilities & Labs

In our labs, you will use the latest technology and equipment to practice real-world applications of the principles you learn in class.

Students gather around the stream table and spray water.

Stream Table

Our stream table makes it possible to test theories that apply to situations of flooding and see instant, real-action results.

Ecological Systems Laboratory

The Ecological Systems Laboratory is a collaborative project between the civil & environmental engineering, biology, and chemistry departments that conducts education, research and outreach activities related to sustainable water quality. As part of this lab, students are able to strengthen their research skills by studying the water quality of the JI Case Wetland on the northern edge of campus.
