The mission of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering is:
  • to educate a diverse student body to be employed in the engineering profession
  • to encourage research and scholarship among our faculty and students
  • to promote service to the engineering profession and society

As the CEE Department moves into the 21st century, we will continue to build upon our role as an valued educator of civil engineers and environmental engineers in the State of New Jersey. Our main vision for the future is continuous quality improvement of students and faculty as NJIT advances in stature both regionally and nationally. Education of bachelor-level civil engineers remains a principal focus of the CEE Department, and to this end, we have established program educational objectives and student outcomes

The Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering shares the four-pronged mission of New Jersey Institute of Technology: education, research, service and economic development.
