The first American woman to earn a degree in civil engineering was Nora Stanton Blatch, class of 1905, from Cornell's School of Civil Engineering (now Civil and Environmental Engineering).

Research in Civil & Environmental Engineering covers an extremely broad range of topics. What binds them together is a context of public works and service - research that benefits the public good. Whether in civil infrastructure, engineering systems & management or environment, the research conducted in Cornell's CEE School is at the cutting edge of technological and scientific developments.
