In-depth knowledge in one of the areas of civil engineering is essential for professional practice as well as for research. Courses are taught by full-time faculty members with a range of academic and professional experience as well as by adjunct instructors who are experts in their fields. Those students interested in research at the master's level or continuing their education at the doctoral level should consider working with faculty involved in one of the university's related research centers.
The MS in Civil Engineering is designed for those who want both specialized course work and the flexibility to tailor their program to their needs.
Applicants are expected to have an undergraduate degree in civil engineering or its equivalent, and must have proficiency in basic sciences and mathematics. Students who lack an appropriate undergraduate background may be granted conditional admission in order to complete a bridge program or its equivalent. These courses are taken in addition to regular degree requirements; descriptions may be found in the undergraduate catalog.
Master's level students in Civil Engineering program can complete either the campus-based or online Master's in Civil Engineering.
The online Master of Science in Civil Engineering offers instruction and learning opportunities with the convenience and flexibility of online delivery, so students can continue to work while going to school. We invite you to learn more about the online Master's in Civil Engineering.
