The department of Civil and Environmental Engineering is part of the Aalto University School of Engineering. The department has its roots deep in the old Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, the activities of which came to an end in connection with the organizational renewal in the end of the year 2007. The new department represents distinguished traditions of civil engineering. Its fields of education and research are among the oldest disciplines of the School.
A functional community needs effective water, wastewater and waste management, sufficient water resources, smooth and safe transportation connections, environmentally friendly construction and maintenance of infrastructure, sustainable geo- and rock engineering and high level planning and research skills in development of urban structure and environment.
The department has a strong profile. Since 1987 the students have been recruited to a separate degree programme option in transportation and environmental engineering.
The department was established by joining together the eight existing laboratories of highway engineering, transportation engineering, water resources engineering, water and wastewater engineering, soil mechanics and foundation engineering, rock engineering, geoenvironmental technology, and environmental protection. Lahti Center was administratively merged to the department of Civil and Environmental Engineering 1.2.2012.
