Our Civil Systems research falls under interdisciplinary topic areas, including:

  • Global Engineering
  • Engineering for Society
  • Sustainable Development
  • Disaster Planning and Recovery
  • Climate Change and Adaptation
  • Life-Cycle Analysis of Infrastructure
  • Engineering Education

Additionally, most research done by civil systems students integrates work from traditional civil engineering disciplines, including building systems, construction engineering and management, environmental engineering, geotechnical engineering, structural engineering and structural mechanics, and water resources engineering.
