Engineering: Civil and Environmental - Graduate GSSP

The pursuit of research excellence and practical application are guiding principles of the graduate curriculum at the University of Idaho and in the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering Program. Students have many opportunities to work with faculty members on practical research projects vital to industry, including engineering prototypes of varying complexity. Classes are large enough to create the necessary creative interchange among students and faculty; at the same time, they are small enough to allow continual interaction between student and teacher.

The National Academy of Engineering has recognized the University of Idaho's College of Engineering's capstone design program as one of the best in nation.
