* GRE scores will not be required for students applying to Civil and Environmental Engineering graduate programs (MS or PhD) for spring, summer, or fall 2021 admission due to challenges taking the exam during the COVID-19 pandemic.
CEE faculty and students engage in research in several focus areas under three primary themes of mobility, water, and building with cross-cutting areas of infrastructure, energy, and the environment. Research opportunities are available for both graduate and undergraduate students.
In accordance with campus and Dane County guidance, all in-person events are currently postponed. Check back for updates on our spring commencement ceremony as May 9 grows closer and feel free to contact CEE communications specialist Amanda Thuss with any questions.
UW-Madison students have expressed creativity and imagination through innovation competitions for nearly 20 years. Launched in 2019, the Innovation in CEE Competition, sponsored by The Boldt Company, is the first of its kind to focus on developing new materials, technologies, and solutions for today’s evolving civil and environmental engineering challenges.
Focus areas under this competition include structural, material, water resources, transportation, geological, construction, and environmental engineering. Now in its third year, the annual Innovation in CEE Competition encourages students to think outside the box and celebrates the entrepreneurial spirit of the Badger engineering community.
The 2021 Innovation Competition will take place on Friday, May 14, 2021.
