Graduate students in civil and environmental engineering have an exceptional opportunity to learn about the latest in their field of study. Environmental engineering students use one of the world's largest wastewater treatment plants as a laboratory to improve water quality in the Potomac River and the Chesapeake Bay watersheds. Structural engineering students study seismic engineering, design structures and bridges for extreme events, and resist earthquakes up to six degrees. -
