UT CAEE engineers are developing and testing new ideas for sustainable infrastructure in this increasingly urban world. The complex problems surrounding the nexus of cities, water, and energy will challenge engineers for decades, and we aspire to be leaders in developing innovative solutions to these problems.
With over 7 billion people on the planet, our population is growing fast. We all need buildings to shop, work, learn, live, shelter and heal in. Architectural engineering students at UT Austin learn to engineer sustainable, healthy, and structurally resilient buildings of the future.
Civil engineering is one of the oldest and arguably the most important engineering disciplines. It involves applications of scientific principles for solving a wide range of problems related to the condition of humans and the planet. It is a wide-ranging profession steeped in history.
As the world's population continues to increase and cities keep rapidly growing, human activity exerts greater influence on the environment. Environmental engineers are charged with decreasing the sphere of human influence so that the earth can sustain future generations.
