Masters Program - Civil Engineering
The Department of Civil Engineering offers both the thesis and non-thesis option in pursuing a Master of Engineering degree with a concentration in Civil Engineering. If the thesis option is chosen, the student is required to take 24 credits of course work and six credit so thesis. If the non-thesis option is chosen the student is required to take 30 credits of course work and submit a report from one of the courses.
Completion of the Master of Engineering degree program with a concentration in civil engineering is important for entry into the profession. The civil engineering concentration focuses the master’s program in two specialized areas: structural and geotechnical; water resources and environmental engineering.
The student must complete a coherent concentration of graduate-level courses approved by the department.
Thesis Project (6 credits)
Total Credits: 30
Graduate students with a concentration 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, fluid mechanics, soil mechanics, environmental sciences, and computer applications prepares students for careers in structural engineering, construction management, infrastructure rehabilitation, geotechnical engineering, water resources and environmental engineering.
Employers of our graduates include: Thornton Tomasetti, Arup, Mueser Rutledge, Metropolitan Transportation Authority, Skanska, Gilbane, Port Authority of New York & New Jersey, NYC Department of Design and Construction.
