The city of Tucson is home to the University of Arizona, which is among the top 15 state universities in the United States for industrial and grant-supported research.
As one of its oldest continuing departments on campus, the Department of Civil Engineering and Engineering Mechanics (CEEM) teaches students how to design various structures such as entertainment arenas, dams and skyscrapers.
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, and Applied Mathematics and Optical Sciences.
This environment provides excellent research opportunities toward the solution of complex and modern engineering problems.
As a student in the Department of Civil Engineering and Engineering Mechanics, you will benefit from the wide variety of educational opportunities provided by a large state university. At the same time you will receive personalized, individual attention with your academic program in our department.
