For over 50 years Clarkson's civil and environmental engineers have been honored to lead restorations and rebuilding of some of New York City's iconic landmarks.
Our department focuses on sustainability and environmental health. Led by faculty, our students have designed, built and are now operating an integrated greenhouse, wood pellet heating and anaerobic digestion system as part of our campus’ local energy efficient food and waste management facility.
Our department also researches unique areas, such as 24/7 wireless bridge monitoring or showing that cranberry bogs have a negative impact on the health of streams. We focus our education on real world projects and situations.
