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.
In response to the COVID-19 virus, a number of upcoming events have been rescheduled or postponed. While we understand the inconvenience that these changes may cause, we believe the well-being of our students near and far, as well as our broader community, is of the utmost importance and we are committed to efforts to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding CEE Department events, please contact Amanda Thuss.
The 24th annual UW-Madison Civil and Environmental Engineering Golf Outing scheduled for Friday, September 11, 2020 has been postponed until Friday, September 10, 2021.
While we understand the inconvenience that this cancelation may cause, we believe the well-being of our alumni near and far, as well as our broader community, is of the utmost importance and we are committed to efforts to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.
As we look ahead to 2021, the Golf Outing promises to be a day of fun and networking at Pleasant View Golf Course. Show your support for the CEE Badger community and help us raise important funds to strengthen the CEE student experience by choosing from a variety of sponsorship packages for golfers and non-golfers alike.
