Message from the Chair

What an exciting time for UNM Civil, Construction and Environmental Engineering (CCEE) as we near the finish line for raising $2M in our first phase of the 12 in 12 fund raising campaign (Raising $12M in 12 years for CCEE). This first phase will establish The Dana Wood Endowed Chair in Emerging Construction and Materials Technology, build the first 3D concrete printing laboratory in the Rocky Mountain Region and establish our state-of-the-art computer lab as the first active learning space for CCEE students. Thanks to department partners and friends who have supported our dream. We now need to raise the final $100K. I ask all of you to contribute generously so this project can be realized by Summer 2019. Our annual summer study abroad program took CCEE students to Germany and The Netherlands to study infrastructure resilience. Our female students participated in a life-changing experience at the Society of Women Engineers Conference. We are very excited by the growth in our research expenditures exceeding $6.0M annually, the national recognition of our faculty and students’ innovative research, and the significant contribution CCEE makes to the economic development of New Mexico and Albuquerque.
