Graduate Programs

The Department of Civil Engineering and Engineering Mechanics (CEEM) provides exciting graduate research programs in a wide range of traditional and modern interdisciplinary areas.

These include theoretical research, laboratory testing and solution of practical problems in civil engineering and engineering mechanics.

With a total enrollment of about 60 graduate students, the department graduates one of the largest numbers of M.S. and Ph.D. students in the College of Engineering.

The University of Arizona is ranked as a Research I University by the Carnegie Commission (its highest ranking), and ranks among the top 20 universities in the United States in external research funding. Our library ranks among the top 20 in the nation.

Because the CEEM department involves a great number of interdisciplinary areas, it collaborates with various other departments such as Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering, Mining and Geological Engineering, Chemical and Environmental Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Hydrology and Water Resources, Chemistry, Applied Mathematics and Optical Sciences.

This environment provides excellent research opportunities towards the solution of complex and modern engineering problems.
