CEE journal was founded by the faculty of Civil Engineering of the University of Žilina, Slovakia on 5 October 2004. The Faculty of Civil Engineering, was established in 1953 as one of five founding faculties of the University of Railway Transport in Prague (former Czechoslovakia). Moving to the city of Žilina in 1959 gave the faculty an impulse for further development.
At present, the faculty is a highly respected scientific and educational institution offering bachelor, master and doctoral study programmes in various technical fields of civil and environmental engineering. In its scientific research and professional activities, the faculty focuses on solving theoretical problems connected with designing transport structures and buildings, use of new materials, design of green buildings, technological processes and numerical simulations, and environmental aspects of transport.
First volumes of the journal were published in Slovak language, and eventually the faculty decided to publish articles in English. A successful new period of the journal started with a strategic alliance with the former publisher DeGruyter Open, later renamed as Sciendo.
Presently, CEE journal is a single-blind peer-reviewed journal published as open access based on Creative Common Licence.
The journal has been indexed in Scopus and Thomson Reuter databases since 2018, and year 2019 marked the appointment of new co-editors for 14 selected topics of the journal. The most recent recognition of the journal is the best quartile Q3 award by the portal Scimago Journal & Country Rank.
