CEGE majors make an impact

Take the first steps toward a fulfilling career with a major in civil, environmental, or geo- engineering.

"I knew that I wanted to help people, as a lot of engineers do. And it’s just a really great way to apply those skills directly to people’s lives—with clean water, the environment, and sustainability."

— Samantha Volkmeier
