Civil & Environmental Engineering

Civil engineering is all about sustainably helping people and the natural world. LMU students may specialize in Water Resources, Environment, Structural and Construction, Geotechnical, Transportation, and Sustainability. Environmental Science is an interdisciplinary field of study that integrates physical and biological sciences, and engineering (including Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Earth Sciences) in the study of the environment, and the solution of environmental problems.
