It is a great pleasure to welcome you to the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) at Florida International University (FIU). We encourage you to visit us and explore the many opportunities our department offers.
Moving forward, we will align our strategies with those of the FIU Next Horizon 2025 Strategic Plan, including improving our CEE graduation rate, increasing total research expenditures and multi-disciplinary collaborations, growing the number of doctoral degrees per year, and increasing the number of patents and licenses, and others.
South Florida is one of the world’s most visited living laboratories and test beds, and we have a group of brilliant faculty members. These strengths and opportunities are spurring preeminent multidisciplinary research, education, and creative activities. We envision continued multidisciplinary collaboration between CEE and Construction Management in the Moss School of Construction, Infrastructure, and Sustainability. We will keep working as a TEAM to achieve our goals, which are aligned with both the College’s and the University’s 2025 strategic plans.
