Graduate Civil Engineering
The civil engineering program is designed to provide a balance of traditional civil engineering subjects with courses exploring innovative technologies currently evolving into specializations with significant professional activities. Technical electives make it possible either to concentrate study in traditional areas or to augment course work with emerging technologies. The group of required courses provides depth of knowledge and an analytical perspective that sets the specialized technical electives in context. The Environmental Engineering option provides the background to apply advanced techniques to environmental problems, an important area of professional activity for civil engineers.
The flexibility of the curriculum allows students to design a program of study tailored to individual career goals and to the demands of the ever-changing marketplace. Students entering the program are normally expected to have a bachelor's degree in civil engineering. However, in certain cases students with undergraduate backgrounds in related engineering or science disciplines may qualify for admission and will be considered on an individual basis.
