Ocean engineering

Department of Civil, Environmental and Ocean Engineering

The Department of Civil, Environmental and Ocean Engineering at Stevens was founded on the core principles of engineering that underpin the infrastructure which supports our economy and our society.

Our community of expert faculty and researchers train our students to address the complex cross-disciplinary challenges faced in the design, construction and monitoring of urban/interconnected infrastructure systems, sustainable environmental systems, resilient coastal communities, and oceanic systems.

Our Areas of Study

Since Stevens' founding, civil engineering has been a critical discipline, and the department has grown to include offerings in environmental and ocean engineering in response to ongoing developments.
