Civil Engineering, M.S.C.E.


About the Civil Engineering Master's Program


The Department of Civil, Environmental and Construction Engineering offers a 30-hour Master of Science in Civil Engineering (M.S.C.E.)

Students working toward a M.S.C.E. specialize in one of the principal sub-disciplines of civil engineering (e.g., environmental engineering, structural engineering, geotechnical engineering, transportation engineering, water resources engineering, or construction engineering and management) in this degree program. The thesis option allows students to complete 24 hours of coursework, perform 6 credit hours of independent research, and write a thesis based on the findings of the research. Requirements for the non-thesis option are as follows:

  • Students enrolling in a non-thesis master’s program may fulfill the degree requirements by either (a) completing 27 credit hours of graduate-level coursework and 3 credit hours of CE 6330 , Master’s Report; or (b) completing 30 credit hours of graduate-level coursework.
  • Students will not be allowed to use credit/non-credit courses (e.g., CE 7000  to fulfill the required 30 credit hours.
  • Students will be required to complete successfully a department-administered comprehensive exam during their graduating semester.
