Everywhere you look, you'll see the work of civil and environmental engineers. They are responsible for the design, construction and maintenance of our infrastructure, from the roads we travel to the drinking water we get from our taps, from tunnels and airports to stadiums and skyscrapers. With employment growth projected at nearly 20 percent before 2020, it's no wonder both CNN Money and U.S. News & World Report rank the civil and environmental engineering profession among the country's best career options.

At Wayne State's College of Engineering, you'll learn from nationally renowned faculty experts and benefit from our High Impact Practices of Student Success: team-based learning, global perspective, undergraduate research, internships and co-ops, and community service.
