Director's Welcome

Welcome to the School of Civil Engineering and Environmental Science at the University of Oklahoma. As you peruse this Web site it will become readily apparent that CEES is one of the most productive and progressive academic units at the state's flagship university.

Randall L. Kolar, Ph.D., P.E., CEES Director

CEES sets the standards within the College of Engineering by which all other schools are measured in terms of educational innovations, research productivity and technology transfer activities. As you explore the links to our faculty Web sites, research centers and innovative educational programs you will see that CEES offers truly exciting educational opportunities in architectural engineering, civil engineering, environmental engineering and environmental science. More importantly, I invite you to carefully consider the five main reasons students choose to pursue their education in CEES.
