The Civil and Environmental Engineering student fund comprises donations from the Industrial Partnership Program that support instructional activities for student groups such as field trips, student projects, student research, conferences and competitions.
Each year, the Civil and Environmental Engineering Student Fee Initiative Committee is charged with apportioning the funds in this account. The committee includes the department chair, six CE/ENVE students, and two CE/ENVE faculty members.
The CE/ENVE Industrial Partnership Program (IPP) was started in January 2018 to expand employment opportunities for civil and environmental engineering students and increased funding for extracurricular student activities.
Since the start of the program, IPP has welcomed 11 platinum sponsors, two gold sponsors, and 16 silver and bronze sponsors.
