Civil, Architectural, and Environmental Engineering

The department offers specialization in architectural engineering, construction engineering management, environmental, geotechnical, materials, structural and water resources engineering. All of the department’s programs prepare graduates to provide leadership in their careers by providing a strong foundation in the fundamental and applied engineering principles. Program faculty have diverse backgrounds including civil, environmental, mechanical, aerospace, architectural, and chemical engineering. All programs include strong design and research components, while having the flexibility to tailor curricula to individual needs. Faculty in all programs collaborate extensively with faculty and researchers from other departments, at Missouri S&T and elsewhere. The Civil, Architectural, and Environmental Engineering Department’s motto is “Change the World,” and through our cutting edge educational programs and research, our graduates are well prepared to meet that goal.

Recent and ongoing funded graduate student research includes: advanced infrastructure materials, natural hazard mitigation for structures, smart cities, river mechanics, constitutive modeling of reinforced and prestressed structures, blast- and impact- protection of critical infrastructure, real-time instrumentation of civil infrastructure, phytoremediation of organic contaminants, aerosol generation and transport, compact low-energy wastewater treatment, green infrastructure, sustainable pavement systems, nanomaterials design and use in infrastructure, durability of concrete, climate adaptation of infrastructure, remote sensing for geo engineering and environmental assessments, and 3D printing of infrastructure materials.

The basic prerequisite for admission to graduate study in the department is a Bachelor of Science degree in Engineering from an ABET accredited school or equivalent. Students who have a degree from a non-accredited school, or hold a Bachelor of Science degree in a field other than engineering, may be required to take engineering prerequisites to prepare for graduate courses. Specific prerequisites will depend on the student’s academic background and intended area of specialization. Degree programs offered are the master of science in civil engineering (MSCE), master of science in environmental engineering (MSEnvE), the doctor of engineering (DE), and the doctor of philosophy (PhD).

The MS degrees are available on campus online via streaming video for place-bound students. Also, the department offers online graduate certificate programs in contemporary structural engineering, geoenvironmental engineering, infrastructure renewal, and project engineering and construction management. Advanced graduate offerings in advanced materials for sustainable infrastructure, surface water resources, and building systems engineering. 

The department is housed in Butler-Carlton Hall, which is also home to outstanding research and teaching facilities, including: the high-bay Structural Engineering Research Laboratory (SERL), the Reese Bituminous Materials Laboratory, the Clayco Advanced Construction and Materials Laboratory (ACML), concrete materials laboratory, System and Process Assessment Research Laboratory (SPAR), geotechnical laboratory, Mathes Environmental Research Laboratories, and water resources laboratory. The Baker Greenhouse is used to study environmental research on plants for controlling groundwater pollution, wetlands and air pollution. All laboratories are equipped with the latest testing, data acquisition and control equipment. The department has its own machine and electronics shops and trained technical staff used for design, construction and maintenance of specialized mechanical and electronic testing equipment needed to support research and teaching.

The department is also home to the Center for Research in Energy and Environment (CREE), the Wei-Wen Yu Center for Cold-Formed Steel Structures (CCFSS), and is active in three separate University Transportation Centers as well has having active partnerships with the Center for Infrastructure Engineering Studies (CIES), the Center for Intelligent Infrastructure (CII) and the Missouri Local Training and Resource Center (MLTRC).

The mission of the Center for Research in Energy and Environment (CREE) is to establish the infrastructure and coordinated faculty base to conduct a wide range of large-scale externally-funded research initiatives designed to protect public health from emerging contaminants and improve our energy systems from generation to utilization. The center helps a diverse group of researchers from across the university to share resources necessary to tackle national and global energy and environmental challenges.

The Center for Intelligent Infrastructure (CII) aims to transform currently disparate design, construction, and operation phases of cyber-physical infrastructures into an open-source, cloud-based application featuring computer simulations of physical infrastructures overlaid with cyber and social infrastructure. Such a digital infrastructure initiative enables grand-scale fundamental and convergent research on the integrated design-build-operation process of infrastructure.

The Center for Infrastructure Engineering Studies (CIES) is an interdisciplinary research center that provides leadership in research and education aimed at solving the problems affecting the nation's aging infrastructure. CIES seeks to be the primary conduit for communication among faculty members on the Missouri S&T campus interested in infrastructure studies through the following mechanisms: interdisciplinary R&D, student education, technology transfer, preparing major infrastructure proposals.

The University Transportation Center program was established to advance United States technology and expertise in the many disciplines comprising transportation through the mechanisms of education, research, and technology transfer at university-based centers of excellence. The theme of this center is to address national needs in the areas of transportation infrastructure focusing on advanced materials, infrastructure resilience and non-destructive testing (NDT) technologies.

The mission of the Wei-WenYu Center for Cold-Formed Steel Structures Center (CCFSS) is to provide an integrated approach for handling research, teaching, engineering education, technical services, and professional activity. The center brings together the technical resources of interested parties, i.e., university researchers, steel producers, product manufacturers, consultants, building officials, government agencies, and others with a common goal of continued improvement of cold-formed steel design and construction.

The Missouri Local Training and Resource Center (MLTRC)  provides a resource center available for use by local agencies throughout the state of Missouri. Its regular activities include the Proactive Training and Customized Transportation Education Programs (PTP and CTEP, respectively), ongoing development of transportation lending and distribution lending libraries, management of MoDOT's Cooperative Purchasing Program, production of a quarterly newsletter, and functioning as a transportation technical assistance resource for individuals and agencies around the state.
