Masters Program - Civil Engineering
Completion of the Master of Engineering degree program in civil engineering is important for entry into the profession in any one of the specialized fields cited.
A coherent concentration of graduate-level courses in the department, which must include courses required by the department (12 credits minimum).
Thesis Project (6 credits)
Total Credits: 30
Both the thesis and the non-thesis options are available to the students.
Graduate students in the department of civil engineering become equipped with the theoretical and practical knowledge needed to solve many problems facing both our built and natural environments. Coursework grounded in the principles of mathematics, structural mechanics, and computer applications prepares students for careers in urban planning, structural engineering, construction management, and infrastructure rehabilitation.
To augment the major curriculum, graduate students have the opportunity to declare minors varying from computer engineering to civil engineering management. Student and faculty often collaborate on projects related to the sustainability, alternative energy sources, and the mitigation of damage caused by natural and man-made disasters.
