Department of Civil and Coastal Engineering

The Department of Civil and Coastal Engineering (CCE) delivers undergraduate and graduate degree programs that prepare graduates for successful careers in an increasingly global and interdisciplinary world. It performs research that results in leading scientific contributions and has a direct impact on our ability to renew, secure, and broaden the capabilities of our nation’s infrastructure, environment and homeland security.

What do Civil and Coastal Engineers do?

Civil engineers design, construct, supervise, operate, and maintain large construction projects and systems, including roads, buildings, airports, tunnels, dams, bridges, and systems for water supply and sewage treatment.

Coastal and oceanographic engineers design and develop equipment and instrumentation that oceanographers, marine biologists, seismologists and other  researchers use to study the oceans and coasts. Because of these engineers’ work, information that was once time-consuming and dangerous to collect can now be gathered in minutes, often from ships or laboratories.

Department of Environmental Engineering Sciences

The mission of the Department of Environmental Engineering Sciences (EES) is to provide quality undergraduate and graduate educational programs in environmental engineering sciences, to conduct an internationally recognized environmental research program that will substantially contribute to the benefit of the earth, and to provide authoritative guidance to individuals and organizations charged with preventing and solving local, state, national and global environmental problems.

What do Environmental Engineers do?

Environmental engineers use the principles of engineering, soil science, biology, and chemistry to develop solutions to environmental problems. They are involved in efforts to improve recycling, waste disposal, public health, and water and air pollution control.

What is this view?

You are using a dynamic assistive view of the University of Florida site. It has all the same data and features of the original site but formatted just with assistive users in mind. It has links and content reorganized to aid assistive users and has controls at the bottom under assistive options that allow you to control key aspects such as font size and contrast colors etc.
This is not a separate text-only site, it's a dynamic view that uses unique technology from Usablenet to give assistive users better, more accessible access to the same content and features as all users that use the graphic view of the site.
