  • Welcome from the Chair - Department of Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering
    who work together learn together and strive together to make the world a better place Our CAEE community is positioned to take leadership roles in addressing several grand challenges associated with both mitigation of and adaptation to climate change We are poised to help better understand and solve water related challenges that span the extremes of drought and flooding and the need for provision of water of sufficient quality to meet the various demands of society We also understand the important expanding and changing roles that civil and architectural engineers will play with respect to the energy demands of society These roles range from effective infrastructure for energy development and power plants construction related activities and production of engineering materials with lower carbon footprints energy conservation in both the transportation and building sectors and treatment of energy related waste products We understand that in an age of the largest migration from rural to urban areas in recorded history we must envision design operate and maintain truly sustainable city systems and infrastructure And we understand that these important challenges are intimately connected to one another in many ways This is an exciting period to be civil architectural and environmental engineers Effective solutions to these challenges will necessitate interdisciplinary partnerships with planners physical scientists behavioral scientists health scientists economists and others Solutions will also require collaborations with industry and policymakers and the input of scholars who can bridge these and other stakeholders through creative education and research that is founded on sound scientific and engineering principles In the future engineers will also need to further embrace international collaborations and the benefits of working across and within various cultures I am proud to serve as Chair of a faculty and staff that cares about providing a comprehensive educational experience for our extraordinary students

  • Strategic Plan - Department of Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering
    more than just collections of buildings and people they are centers of regional transportation networks with interlocking energy networks and water treatment wastewater systems which prevent cities from becoming centers of cholera typhoid and dysentery Water and its connection to cities and energy Water both in sufficient quantity and quality is the keystone for human life This seemingly free and infinite resource falls from the sky runs across the landscape and can be pumped from the ground but is now understood to be close to its finite limits for many cities around the world CAEE engineers are developing new strategies and technologies for understanding and mitigating effects of episodic swings from severe drought with water rationing to flooded streets with hillside failures that destroy neighborhoods Water supply issues include conservation reuse of treated water and development of desalination methods Urban water supplies are intimately connected with energy as the energy for pumping water and wastewater for houses business parks and industry is a significant portion of a city s energy costs Energy and its connection to cities and water Cities require energy to run the transportation and communication networks to pump water to users and wastewater away for treatment as well as for the lights heating and cooling that make it possible to build cities from equatorial Singapore to Reykjavik near the Arctic Circle Energy conservation measures are important for advanced building designs to minimize operational costs and improve sustainability CAE engineers are also involved in designing and innovating the infrastructure required for energy development and generation along with the storage and treatment of associated waste Transportation networks have energy implications and CAE engineers are working on innovative approaches to improve traffic flow and reduce energy waste Energy is also connected to water in many advanced technologies water reclamation and treatment strategies can be energy intensive and power generation itself is recognized as a major water user 4 City infrastructure The infrastructure of a city includes its buildings transportation network water network and energy network Design and innovation in each area can have impacts across other areas especially as new ideas reduce energy use construction costs or make infrastructure more survivable in hurricanes floods and earthquakes Such issues are important to CAE engineers because our cities are not static they are growing Growing cities require new infrastructure to handle the increasing population and stresses on the existing infrastructure which was rarely built with adequate foresight of the rate of population increase Overloading of older infrastructure is made more problematic by decades of underinvestment in maintenance and technology The American Society of Civil Engineer s most recent review of the state of U S infrastructure led to a grade of D across numerous categories including several poor grades for infrastructure related to water energy and urban transportation systems 5 We see opportunities for innovation and improvement as this infrastructure is repaired replaced or upgraded in the coming decades Connections across the CAEE department and the world There are important and emerging
