Iowa State University Department of Civil, Construction and Environmental Engineering encourages its faculty and students to pursue cutting-edge research. The department’s researchers conduct work in five focus areas (transportation, structures, construction engineering, geotechnical/materials, and environment/water resources). Those researchers constantly develop new and innovative ways to face the modern challenges of today’s world.

Recent Research (By Focus Area)

 Transportation[2]
  • Iowa State researchers take new long-lasting highway findings on the road[3]
  • Safety takes front seat in second phase of national highway program[4]
  • ISU researchers work to develop a better system to manage traffic incidents[5]
 Structures[6]
  • Civil, aerospace engineering faculty team up for NCHRP-sponsored IDEA project[7]
  • Development of spirally coiling, force-sensing soft-robot for safe and accurate cochlear electrode implantation[8]
 Construction Engineering[9]
  • Iowa State researchers awarded National Science Foundation grant to assess impact of extreme weather on energy production[10]
  • Jeong leads NSF project to develop fast, efficient means of analyzing data [11]
 Geotechnical/Materials[12]
  • Joint CBE-CCEE Bio-Polymer Facility celebrates first production run[13]
  • Iowa State engineers test heated pavement technology at Des Moines International Airport[14]
 Environmental/Water Resources[15]
  • Interdisciplinary student seeks solutions to overseas water crisis[16]
