Our Mission

The mission of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering of the University of Houston is to educate its students to be productive engineers and responsible citizens in the changing environment of the 21st century.

The Mission is achieved by:

  • upholding traditions of high academic standards in the classroom and in non-classroom educational activities, and encouraging students with non-traditional and diverse ethnic backgrounds;
  • creating, discovering and disseminating new knowledge through research and scholarly activity; and,
  • serving as a resource for the constituencies of the University of Houston and the profession of civil and environmental engineering.
