About the Department
The Texas Tech University Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering has earned international prominence in several areas. Traditionally, one of the broadest of engineering disciplines, Civil and Environmental Engineering at Texas Tech has recently expanded its curriculum to encompass even more academic options in response to societal needs. In addition to the bachelor’s degree based on structural, environmental, geotechnical, transportation, construction, and water resources, students now have opportunities for course work and research experience leading to masters and doctoral degrees in civil engineering, a master's degree in environmental engineering, and a graduate certificate in construction engineering and management. The Civil and Environmental Engineering Building houses excellent laboratories, classrooms, and computer facilities for teaching and research.
