Our Faculty and Staff

The faculty and staff of the School of Civil & Environmental Engineering are committed to excellence - both in the classroom and the research laboratory.  
We believe that teaching is our fundamental mission at OSU.  We create an atmosphere where high quality teaching is encouraged and supported.

Our Research

Our goal is to create impact through a growing research enterprise that engages faculty and students in funded federal, state and industry based innovation.
Recognition by peers as a leader in research has numerous benefits.  CIVE faculty members and students will have a better chance of winning national awards, securing national research funding, occupying leadership positions in our professional societies as editors of journals, conference chairs, board members, etc.  

Our Degree Programs

We are happy to visit with you about your interests in Civil and Environmental Engineering.  If you have interest in Civil and Environmental Engineering, we extend an invitation to you to consider our program at Oklahoma State University.

Civil Engineering, BSCV

Civil Engineering is one of the oldest engineering disciplines with the focus on the built environment that encompasses much of what defines modern civilization: buildings, bridges, roads, etc.

Civil Engineering, MS

The Master of Science degree is characterized by a technical specialization in a particular area of study.

Environmental Engineering, MS

The Master of Science degree in Environmental Engineering prepares graduates with the advanced knowledge and skills needed to solve complex problems in environmental engineering.

Civil Engineering, Ph.D.

The Doctor of Philosophy degree is designed to prepare students for research and for the teaching profession in engineering.

Our Technical Areas

The Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering (BSCE) is a broadly based degree that requires coursework in all of these technical areas, so that graduates are prepared for a wide variety of career opportunities.  For the Master of Science in Civil Engineering (MSCE) and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degrees, students specialize in one of the technical areas.  Research opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students are available in these technical areas.

Construction Engineering & Management

Construction Engineering concerns the planning and management of the construction of structures such as highways, bridges, airports, railroads, buildings, dams, and reservoirs. 

Environmental Engineering & Water Resources

Environmental engineering is the application of science and engineering principles to improve the environment (air, water, and/or land resources), to provide healthy water, air, and land for human habitation and for other organisms, and to remediate polluted sites.

Geotechnical Engineering & Construction Materials

Geotechnical engineering is a field of civil engineering that deals with the engineering behavior of soils, rocks, other earth and geo-materials. 

Structural Engineering & Engineering Mechanics

Structural engineering is a field of engineering that deals with the design of a structural system with the purpose of supporting and resisting various loads. 

Transportation & Pavement Engineering

Transportation and pavement engineering is the science of safe and efficient movement of people and goods (transport). The planning aspects of transportation engineering relate to urban planning, and involve technical forecasting decisions and political factors.
