Doctorate Studies in Civil Engineering in District of Columbia in USA. Program Overview Civil and Environmental Engineering graduate students have extraordinary opportunities to learn about the state-of-the-art in their studies. Environmental engineering students use one of the world’s largest wastewater treatment plants as a real-world laboratory to improve the water quality of the Potomac River and the Chesapeake Bay watershed. Structural engineering students study earthquake engineering, extreme event design of structures and bridge design on a state-of-the-art, six-degrees-of-freedom earthquake simulator. And transportation-engineering students learn from faculty and experts at GW’s National Crash Analysis Center and the Federal Outdoor Impact Laboratory. The doctoral program aims to educate highly qualified researchers who will enhance fundamental knowledge and produce technological innovations through original research and development. Our location and relationships with companies and government agencies in the Washington, D.C., area allow for collaborative research opportunities that greatly increase our graduates’ job prospects. The Department collaborates with several entities throughout the greater D.C. metropolitan area for research, including: the Center for Intelligence Systems Research (CISR) for developing intelligent transportation systems; the Potomac River and Chesapeake Bay Watershed on improving water quality; the National Crash Analysis Center for research in transportation engineering In addition, the Science and Engineering Hall on GW's main campus features a new high bay, in which students in civil and environmental engineering may apply their knowledge in testing the strength of heavy objects against a strong wall and strong floor.
