Research Areas

As society tries to cope with expanding urbanization, decaying infrastructure, global climate change, and an increase in the human population, CEE faculty are working on problems that go far beyond the traditional areas of the field. With such a broad wealth of expertise, CEE faculty are grouped in six areas of affinity to enhance research efforts and collaboration across disciplines.

Each affinity group is lead by a CEE faculty member who is an expert within the area. Graduate students may choose from the six areas for their master’s and/or doctoral studies.

CEE's affinity groups conduct a variety of interdisciplinary research initiatives within the School, across campus, and with other universities around the world. This interdisciplinary approach to research attracts a broad array of corporate, governmental, and research foundation support. Students can also gain valuable work experience through graduate assistantships in CEE, the Georgia Tech Cooperative Education Program, and the Georgia Tech Research Institute.
