The Department of Engineering Systems and Environment (ESE) at the University of Virginia was created in 2018 to address some of society’s most difficult engineering problems. The new department strategically integrates the Civil and Environmental Engineering and Systems Engineering programs, placing it in a preeminent position of field leadership in the study of human- and socio-technical engineering. We create knowledge and innovations that will help solve engineering’s “Grand Challenges.” These problems are often emergent, large-scale and complex, such that decision- makers have historically been poorly equipped to achieve outcomes that enhance long-term human well-being in a rapidly changing world. We believe that a better future is possible for all by training the leaders of tomorrow in a collaborative academic environment that encourages excellence in the classroom, laboratory and field.
