The Master of Science degree in Civil Engineering is designed to provide civil engineering professionals with the opportunity to prepare for careers concerned with the critical problems of a multifaceted society.
Civil engineering education and research activities focus on projects that are typically large and costly, with potentially profound environmental, social, and financial impacts.
The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering offers a Master of Science degree in Civil Engineering (MSCE) and a new Master of Civil Engineering degree (MCE). The MSCE is a research oriented thesis program, while the MCE is a course only technical training program.
Small class sizes ensure personal attention from the highly qualified faculty. The department has state-of-the-art laboratories for each major technical area.
These labs—housed in the Engineering Building (EB); Biotechnology, Sciences and Engineering (BSE) building; and Applied Engineering and Technology (AET) building—include:
Research Assistantships and Teaching Assistantships are available on a competitive basis to full time students carrying out research. Typical amounts are $22.5k and $25.5k per year for MSCE and PhD students.
Funding agencies include:
A listing of our available courses per semester are listed on the Civil Engineering webpage.
