Our mission is to provide undergraduate education founded on a rigorous treatment of engineering fundamentals coupled with modern engineering tools, and to provide graduate education opportunities in a majority of traditional civil engineering areas.
Our graduate and undergraduate academic programs in civil engineering, environmental engineering and construction engineering technology, including minors in land surveying and business administration, prepare the next generation of engineering professionals.
Our research focus areas include snow science and cold research, water resources, geotechnical engineering and alternative materials. Research centers and facilities include the Western Transportation Institute (WTI) and the Subzero Research Laboratory.
