About

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Howard University offers an undergraduate degree program and three graduate degree programs, a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering, Master of Engineering, Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy. Areas of specialization in both undergraduate and graduate study include the sub-disciplines of environmental and water resources engineering, structural and earthquake engineering, transportation engineering, and geotechnical engineering.

These are opportune times to study civil and environmental engineering. As our nation's infrastructure is eroding, civil engineers are being called to address the grand challenges of restoring, protecting, and improving our nation's infrastructure with a keen eye on sustainable green design.

At Howard University, faculty and students are involved in interdisciplinary research involving collaborations with departments both within Howard and external to Howard, and have made distinct paths in research and education within our field.

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering educates leaders, entrepreneurs, educators, researchers and professionals with an international awareness. Over the years, our alumni have continued to make strong impacts on our profession and society. Howard University's location in Washington, D.C. affords students with unique opportunities to interact with government agencies, non-governmental organizations, local contractors, companies and industrial affiliates.
