Everywhere you look, you'll see the work of civil and environmental engineers. They are responsible for the design, construction and maintenance of our infrastructure, from the roads we travel to the drinking water we get from our taps, from tunnels and airports to stadiums and skyscrapers. With employment prospects on an upward trend worldwide, there's no better place to engage in the field of Civil and Environmental Engineering than a resurgent Detroit.

At Wayne State's College of Engineering, you'll learn from nationally-renowned faculty experts and benefit from our High Impact Practices of Student Success: team-based learning, global perspective, undergraduate research, internships and co-ops, and community service.
