Here, you will see some of the publications that our undergraduate students have published in collaboration with faculty from the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department. For further lists of publications, visit individual faculty’s site on the Faculty and Staff page.
Some of the studies below have stemmed from term projects students complete as part of their coursework, while others have been carried out as a Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF), or as a result of an Independent Study under faculty guidance. The ability to carry out research and publish and present findings at academic and professional conferences is a valuable experience that we enable and encourage our students here at the CEE Department. Such experiential education opportunities builds self-confidence, broadens students’ knowledge in a particular field, and are also important ways to network and meet other professionals.
