Christian Meyer, professor emeritus in the Department of Civil Engineering and Engineering Mechanics (CEEM), passed away peacefully in his sleep on June 5, 2020 after many years of debilitating illness.

Columbia Earth and Environmental engineers lead a $1M multi-university team funded by NSF Convergence Accelerator to use AI and machine learning to quantify America's water supply risk in the face of climate change and aging infrastructure.

CEEM Students Awarded National Fellowships and Scholarships

Maria Q. Feng, Renwick Professor of Civil Engineering and Engineering Mechanics, has been awarded the Robert Moskovic Award for contributions in the Safety and Sustainability of Civil Infrastructure Systems field.

CEEM Faculty New Book Releases

The department of Civil Engineering and Engineering Mechanics is pleased to announce a new MS specialization area in Computational and Data-Driven Engineering Mechanics. This program is intended for individuals who wish to enrich their knowledge and learn the state-of-the-art in computational and data-driven methods used in engineering mechanics. These skills are highly desired in industry, national laboratories, and academic careers. Upon graduation the students will receive a certificate and will be provided with a letter from the department chairperson acknowledging successful program completion and specialization in Computational and Data-Driven Engineering Mechanics.


Dr. Ibrahim Odeh, Founding Director of the Global Leaders of Construction Management (GLCM) program at Columbia University, was appointed as a member of the Global Infrastructure Hub’s Academic Advisory Board.The Global Infrastructure Hub (GI Hub) headquartered in Sydney, Australia was established by the G20 in 2014. The focus of the GI Hub is to support the G20 agenda, to connect the global infrastructure community and to share insights to facilitate delivery of G20 members’ economic, social and environmental outcomes through increased and improved infrastructure.

Welcome Lunch for Fall 2022 - August 30, 2022


Civil Engineering's Sharon Di is bringing flow to New York City by creating digital twins of the busiest traffic knots and having them learn to untangle themselves.

He will use the funding to develop a framework for calculating the uncertainty of fine-scale wind predictions in and above cities.

On Wednesday, December 14, 2022, the CEEM department hosted our annual Holiday Party where students, faculty, staff, and visiting scholars enjoyed a beautiful lunch and gathered to celebrate the end of the semester! Here are a few moments from the party.

CEEM Professor Sharon Di wins the IDC Smart Cities North America Award in the field of Transportation with the overall goal of managing urban traffic and contributing to greener, safer, and quicker travel. A special recognition goes to CEEM's PhD student, Yongjie Fu, who contributed to traffic simulation development for traffic light optimization.

The American Society of Civil Engineers recognizes two prominent researchers for their outstanding contributions to the field of civil engineering.
