Our Impact 

At CCE our mission is to provide a comprehensive, state-of-the-art education to prepare students for professional and responsible engineering and constructor positions. Our impact in fulfilling this mission can be seen in our 1,150 enrolled students and in our alumni who each day make lasting contributions to their employers, and their communities.

At our world-class facilities, we are studying tsunamis to make coastal cities more secure, driver behavior to make our streets safer, and green infrastructure materials to make construction more resourceful.  Our influence circles the globe, touching the everyday lives of people around the world and back home again to Oregon.

Our Mission

In an inclusive and collaborative environment, we: conduct interdisciplinary research toward a safe, resilient, and sustainable world; educate socially responsible engineers and construction managers for work in industry and academia and for lifelong learning; and support professional partnerships, outreach, dissemination, and community service.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion 

Oregon State University’s School of Civil and Construction Engineering is committed to taking actions to make our community and engineering professions more inclusive and just. We listen to, engage, and encourage people so that everybody belongs.
