Students work in a lab focused on researching air quality solutions

Our Chicago location provides our students with access to an extraordinary range of research opportunities. Students have the opportunity to explore one of the world’s great cities that is the historical and cultural heart of America’s architecture, engineering, and construction industry.

Our undergraduate students seek and obtain internships as early as their first summer, and many are able to work part-time in engineering firms downtown while completing their final years of study. Others gain experience conducting research alongside graduate students and faculty members in the civil, architectural, and environmental engineering (CAEE) department.

Our faculty members include a combination of research-focused professors and adjunct professors with years of industry experience.
