Join us Friday, September 20, 2019 for the 23rd Annual Civil & Environmental Engineering Golf Outing, a tradition that’s been going for over 20 years. See the event calendar below for details and sponsorship information.
Daniel Wright, an assistant professor of civil and environmental engineering, published results of his latest study in July 2019 in the American Geophysical Union’s Geophysical Research Letters.
Professor Chin Wu's groundbreaking research has shown meteotsunamis can generate unexpected rip currents, now known as meteo-rips. These can last hours after the meteotsunami and are life-threatening to beachgoers.
Professor Daniel Noguera and graduate student Miguel Perez have helped demonstrate how the soil bacterium N. aromaticivorans could turn a renewable source — lignin from plant cells — into a replacement for petroleum-based plastics.
The department offers several academic degree programs:
- Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering
- Bachelor of Science in Geological Engineering
- Master of Science or PhD in Civil and Environmental Engineering
- Master of Science in Civil and Environmental Engineering– Accelerated Option
- Master of Science or PhD in Geological Engineering

Research and Initiatives
CEE faculty and students engage in research in several focus areas under our three primary themes of Mobility, Water, and Building with cross-cutting areas of Infrastructure, Energy, and the Environment.
We cannot wait to introduce our newest #CEEBadgers to the College of Engineering community! Activities will include guest speakers, lunch in Engineering Mall, and a teamwork activity for students to showcase their creative minds!
See familiar faces, meet new people, and start the semester off right with a scoop of Babcock ice cream during the annual CEE Ice Cream Social.
Ice cream will be served from 2:30 – 3:30 pm in the Cheney Room, Engineering Hall on Friday, September 6. All CEE and GLE students, faculty, and staff are welcome to attend.
To make sure we have enough ice cream for everyone, please register online.
The Civil/Geological Engineering Job Fair is focused on summer internships and co-op opportunities, as well as post-graduation employment for students pursuing related degrees at UW-Madison.
The job fair will take place on Friday, September 13th from 11AM to 3PM in the Symphony Room of Gordon Dining and Event Center.
