Welcome to the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering

Civil and environmental engineers design the foundations of modern society. Our department focuses on offering tangible solutions for the built environment, and providing students with the resources necessary to succeed within the field of civil and environmental engineering.

Civil and environmental engineering prepares students so that they can effectively plan, design, construct and maintain living and working spaces; along with infrastructure such as skyscrapers, motorways, bridges, tunnels and dams. It’s critical for meeting the needs of environmental protection and urban regeneration; with economically sustainable systems that manage clean water supply, wastewater treatment, land and air pollution.

The University of Auckland offers a strong and distinguished tradition of civil and environmental engineering research and education. Graduates of our department can be certain that they are entering the professional sphere with a solid and diverse body of knowledge that will serve them well within any engineering career.
