The Civil & Environmental Engineering Department's partnerships within the engineering community begins with its students. Whether they are in degree programs or are post-graduation and working professionally in the field, CEE students fulfill roles leading student organizations, networking with other CEE Alumni, serving on the Civil & Environmental Engineering Visiting Council, or have been inducted into the Hardy Cross Hall of Fame. Together, these partnerships have provided project support, mentorship, community service, speaker events, and professional development opportunities.
The Civil & Environmental Engineering Visiting Council (CEEVC) is comprised of volunteers from the Hampton Roads Engineering Community who actively support the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department (CEE) and foster student success through a variety of initiatives.
The Hardy Cross Hall of Fame recognizes the lifetime contributions of Civil Engineering professionals during National Engineer's Week by the Civil and Environmental Engineering Visiting Council.
Since 2013, Civil & Environmental Engineering Alumni further their support of academic and professional activities to enhance the CEE student experience and provide resources for new graduates.
Civil & Environmental Engineering Students who participate in student organizations have the opportunity to connect with peers, faculty advisors, CEEVC, national competitions, and professionals in their future fields of interest.
