Civil and Environmental Engineering, M.S.

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering offers a curriculum leading to the Master of Science in Civil and Environmental Engineering (M.S.), and the Doctor of Philosophy in Civil and Environmental Engineering (Ph.D.) degrees. Graduate students specialize in one of the four available areas: Environmental Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering, Structural Engineering, and Transportation Engineering.

Admission Requirements

Bachelor’s degree in civil or environmental engineering. Candidates in other engineering or closely related fields may be accepted with the possibility of additional undergraduate prerequisite courses being required.

The M.S. degree requires 32 credits including two credits of a seminar course. Part-time students usually have the seminar credits waived.

There are two options:

  1. A research-oriented thesis option which requires the successful defense of a thesis (6 to 9 credits)
  2. A non-thesis option which requires the completion of a comprehensive technical report (3 credits)
