Civil and Environmental Engineering: A challenge with responsibility

Since its creation in 1950, the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering has sought to lead a transformative process of Engineering in Colombia through its areas of specialization, becoming an academic point of reference in a national and an international level. Currently, the Department is strongly committed to improving its academic and research programs to enable students to meet and lead the challenges of a growing country as future engineers.

Over the next few years, Colombia will have to close the infrastructure gap by investing large sums of money in projects that, surely, will be engineering landmarks. For that we expect our graduates to play a relevant and outstanding role, providing ideas as part of innovative and sustainable solutions, but always in a context of social responsibility, and in the interest of our country's development.
