Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Jackson State University
Welcome to the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. Civil Engineering, the oldest and broadest of the divisions of engineering, implements a range of public and private projects for improving the world's environment. The civil engineer integrates scientific principles including modern computational tools with engineering experience to conceive, plan, design, construct, operate, and maintain facilities such as network of highways and railroads, airports, bridges, buildings, dams, tunnels, environmental pollution control systems, water purification and distribution systems and urban transportation systems that maintain, protect, and enhance the quality of life in our society. Civil Engineering is about community service, development and improvement, which includes the planning, design, construction, maintenance and operation of facilities essential to modern technological society, ranging from transit systems to offshore structures to space satellites.
