Our Programs

Students who choose to study in the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering can select from a variety of degree programs. Undergraduate students can complete a B.S. in either Civil Engineering or Environmental Engineering. Engineers who want to further their training can engage in the graduate coursework of the two-semester M.Eng program, in which they focus their coursework and projects on one of several possible concentrations, or the Master of Science and Ph.D. programs, in which each student designs an individualized course of study in collaboration with a committee of faculty members.

Graduate Studies

Professional Track:

  • The master of engineering (M.Eng.) in civil and environmental engineering program is a two-semester coursework and project-oriented program for the student who wishes to improve the depth and breadth of their technical abilities in the context of the engineering profession. 
  • The master of engineering in engineering management program is appropriate for engineers who want to stay in a technical environment, but focus on managerial roles.

Research Track:

  • The master of science (M.S.) program involves research in an individualized course of study.
  • The doctor of philosophy (Ph.D.) program is an intensive research program normally completed over the course of several years.
