Graduate Programs

The goal of the educational programs in civil engineering is to produce graduates who are schooled in fundamentals and capable of doing advanced engineering work. To this end, programs are offered in the Department of Civil Engineering which are professional in nature and lead to the Master of Science (M.S.) with a coursework-only option or a thesis-option, the Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.), and the Doctor of Engineering (D.Engr.). Major areas are construction engineering and management, environmental engineering and environmental management, mechanics, structural engineering, and systems engineering. A concentration in fluid or solid mechanics is offered at the doctoral level only. The available courses include laboratory studies, applied mathematics, engineering analysis, engineering design, and a variety of introductory and advanced level courses in various areas of applied science and construction management.
