MEng in Civil & Environmental Engineering

Karen Sweetland PhD Env Eng Lab

The Master of Engineering program is normally completed in two semesters of intensive study. Thirty credit hours consisting of coursework in major and supporting areas and a project are required.

In addition to coursework in a chosen major, a student will also take courses in supporting area(s). Supporting areas can be chosen from many disciplines, including any of the specialty areas within CEE, microbiology, historic preservation, operations research, computer science, economics, materials science, architecture, and engineering management to name just a few. Students from all fields of engineering and the physical and natural sciences are welcome in the master of engineering programs offered by the CEE School. However, a student may be asked or required to take additional preparatory coursework which will be determined by faculty in the student’s chosen major. This preparatory work does not count toward the master of engineering graduation requirements. Any preparatory coursework that is required will be listed in a student’s letter offering admission. Students wishing to obtain a Master of Engineering (Civil & Environmental Engineering) degree may select a major in one of the following six concentrations:
