Courses offered by the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering have the subject code CEE, and are listed in the "Civil and Environmental Engineering [CEE] Courses" section of this bulletin.

The primary mission of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) at Stanford is the execution of basic and applied research that advances the civil and environmental engineering professions, the education of future academic and industry leaders, and the preparation of students for careers in professional practice. Civil and environmental engineers work to sustain the natural environment while creating and maintaining the built environment. Civil and environmental engineers are essential to providing the necessities of human life, including water, air, shelter, the infrastructure, energy, and food, increasingly in more efficient and renewable ways.

The department focus is on the theme of engineering for sustainability, including three focus areas: the built environment, environmental and water studies, and atmosphere and energy. The built environment includes creating processes, techniques, materials, and monitoring technologies for planning, design, construction and operation of environmentally sensitive, economically efficient, performance-based built systems, and managing associated risks from natural and man-made hazards. Built environment research and teaching is conducted primarily within the programs of Construction Engineering and Management, Design-Construction Integration, and Structural Engineering and Geomechanics and Sustainable Design Construction. The water environment includes creating plans, policies, science-based assessment models and engineered systems to manage water in ways that protect human health, promote human welfare, and provide freshwater and coastal ecosystem services. Water environment research and teaching is conducted primarily within the programs of Environmental Engineering and Sciences and Environmental Fluid Mechanics and Hydrology. Atmosphere and Energy includes studying fundamental energy and atmospheric engineering and science, assessing energy-use effects on atmospheric processes and air quality, and analyzing and designing energy-efficient generation and use systems with minimal environmental impact.
