Master of Science in Civil or Environmental Engineering
A minimum of 30 credit hours beyond the baccalaureate degree is required. For full-time graduate students, six credit hours may involve research and completion of a thesis, with approval from the student’s advisor, with an additional 24 credit hours of coursework. The program also has the flexibility to meet the needs of part-time students, already working in industry, who typically take the non-thesis route with 30 credit hours of coursework. All Civil and Environmental Engineering graduate courses are offered with evening class times or via distance learning to accommodate the schedule of working professionals.
Students can choose to group at least three elective courses (nine credit hours) into the following secondary specialties: smart and resilient infrastructure, environmental health and compliance, or global and sustainable development. Secondary specialties are optional. If students wish to pursue this option, they must complete the core courses from one Civil and Environmental Engineering primary specialty and at least nine credit hours in one of the secondary specialties.
