Civil Engineering, M.Engr.

Objective and Description

The objective of the graduate program in civil engineering is to prepare students for continued professional and scholarly development consistent with their technical interests. Students, with the assistance of a faculty advisor in their area of interest, plan their programs of study in one of the technical areas in civil engineering. Typical program and research areas are:

  1. Construction Engineering and Management;
  2. Environmental (water and air quality control, and solid and hazardous materials control);
  3. Geotechnical (soil mechanics and foundations);
  4. Infrastructure Systems;
  5. Structures and Applied Mechanics;
  6. Transportation (traffic planning, highways, airports and transit);
  7. Water Resources (hydrology and hydraulics)
Civil Engineering

Degree Requirements

The Master of Engineering degree is an engineering practice-oriented program requiring a minimum of 36 credit hours. A maximum of six hours may be a special project. A final program examination is required of all master's degree candidates. Thesis degree candidates will be required to present an oral defense of the thesis. Non-thesis degree candidates will fulfill the program examination requirement upon the successful completion of CE 5193, Master's Comprehensive Examination. Candidates must enroll in CE 5193 in the semester they intend to graduate.
