Master of Science
Programs are offered in the specialized areas mentioned above. Applicants for admission generally should have a B.S. degree in civil engineering; however, those with B.S. degrees in other areas of engineering may also be eligible for admission. This degree requires the preparation of an approved thesis.
Master of Engineering
A minimum of 33 credits is required. The other M.S. requirements apply. This study program includes the preparation of a technical paper.
Doctor of Philosophy
Persons interested in pursuing a doctoral degree must contact a faculty member with whom they wish to work well in advance of admission to the Graduate College. We only accept those students who meet admissions requirements and are awarded graduate assistantships.
The qualifying examination is written and/or oral, and the preliminary examination is written and oral. Candidates for graduate study must fulfill the requirements of the College of Graduate Studies and of the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering. See the College of Graduate Studies section of the catalog for the General Requirements applicable to each degree.
Course work requirements in each of the degree programs are relatively flexible depending on student interest and course availability. Financial assistance is available on a competitive basis in the form of instructional or graduate research assistantships. Students interested in graduate studies should select a specialty area in which they wish to study. Entrance requirements for the College of Graduate Studies apply. Foreign students must have a TOEFL score of at least 550 for admission to any departmental graduate degree program.
