The Faculty of Civil Engineering was established in 1924. It was then, and still is, the only one of its kind in Israel. Throughout the years, its graduates have played a major role in the development and use of Israel's natural resources and in establishing the country's infrastructure. The Faculty covers a vast area of technological activities in teaching, research and dissemination of knowledge in all fields of Civil Engineering. It is one of the largest units at the Technion. In the academic year 1997/98, the number of undergraduate students was 1300 and the number of graduate students about 310; staff members totalled 132, including 62 senior faculty members, 14 research associates, 56 junior staff and a varying number of part-time adjuncts, as needed. Civil Engineering deals with planning, design and construction of buildings for industrial use, residential buildings, roads, bridges, airports, harbors, hydraulic installations, dams, water resource systems, water supply systems, sewage systems, and geodesy. Civil engineers are also engaged in environmental management and engineering, air pollution, disposal of solid wastes, management of water resources, and transportation engineering. Activities in all these areas include teaching, research and consulting to industry and government.
Teaching and research activities are carried out within the framework of divisions. Following are the current divisions: Building Materials, Performance and Technology, Construction Management, Environmental and Water Resources Engineering, Geodetic Engineering, Geotechnology, Structural Engineering, Transportation and Highways Engineering
