Civil and Environmental Engineering
A. James Clark School of Engineering
1173 Glenn L. Martin Hall
Civil and environmental engineers are problem solvers, innovators, and global leaders. Their work is all around you—the buildings we live in, the roads we travel on, the systems that treat our water, the pollution controls that protect our health, and the strategies that help us plan and recover from disasters. Stronger global communities, economies, and ecosystems depend on dedicated civil and environmental engineers.
