Engineering Studies

A certificate is a document that indicates mastery of a particular skill or discipline. Because certificate programs vary broadly in terms of content and length, strong variation is to be expected from one certificate program to the next.

Engineering is the process of designing, inventing, building and maintaining machines, structures, tools and other things that are a part of daily life. This is done by combining knowledge of empirical evidence, mathematics and global awareness.

 

From indigenous civilizations to modern day empires, North America has plenty of hands-on educational opportunities to offer scholars. Filled with a range of distinct cultures, students can educate themselves in well-rounded way.

About CEE

What is Civil and Environmental Engineering?

Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) is one of the most diverse engineering disciplines, encompassing environmental and water resources engineering, geosystems engineering, public health engineering, and structural engineering. Civil and environmental engineers are responsible for the planning, design, construction, and operation of structures and facilities that are essential to the environment and infrastructure of a sustainable society. Traditionally these structures included buildings, highways, water and waste treatment plants, tunnels, airports, harbors, railroads, bridges, and dams. Today, civil and environmental engineers are involved in a wide range of engineered and natural systems that contribute to a modern society and protect the environment and public health. These activities include the development and testing of new materials, structural health monitoring and rehabilitation, management and protection of watersheds and water supplies, mathematical modeling of built and natural environments, bioremediation and exposure assessment....
