The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering offers students the opportunity to pursue a variety of programs under a common departmental structure. The Department has evolved over time to reflect the growth in technical knowledge and its application to problems of social concern. The Department offers four areas of concentration or stems:

  • Geotechnical Engineering
  • Environmental & Water Resource Engineering
  • Structural Engineering & Structural Mechanics
  • Transportation Engineering

The coursework in each of these stems comes from four major civil engineering discipline areas. These stems allow the student to pursue individual areas of specialization by selecting  sequences of technical electives.

The Civil Engineering Program at The University of Alabama in Huntsville encourages the development of an engineer equipped to compete nationally and prepares students to become registered professional engineers.
