Water Resources Engineering

Field of study in which chemistry, biology, and fluid mechanics principles are used together in assessing natural ecosystems and designing processes that maintain environmental quality.

Geotechnical/Geoenvironmental Engineering

Field of study which uses the principles of soil and rock mechanics to investigate subsurface environment in order to characterize its physical and mechanical properties, and analyze, design, and construct earthworks and substructures.

Sustainable Infrastructure Materials

Field of study which seeks to provide a platform for future sustainable engineering of civil infrastructure systems, linking the material microstructural tailoring to the full-scale field performance of civil infrastructure.

Transportation Engineering

Field of study dealing with the analysis, design, construction, performance monitoring, and optimization of transportation infrastructure.
