Civil & Environmental Engineering


From the roads we drive on to the water we drink, civil and environmental engineers play an important and transformational role in society. With several academic degree programs, research opportunities, and a welcoming community of faculty and staff, the UW-Madison CEE Department is home to the resources and guidance that prepares students for rewarding careers.



* GRE scores are not required for students applying to Civil and Environmental Engineering graduate programs (MS or PhD) for spring, summer, or fall 2022 admission due the COVID-19 pandemic.
