Master of Science or PhD in Civil and Environmental Engineering
The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering offers graduate programs leading to Master of Science (MS) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degrees in civil and environmental engineering. The MS programs emphasize the enhancement of professional knowledge and skills, including research techniques. Two MS programs are available, allowing students to choose from a one-year course-work based degree or a two-year, research-based degree. The PhD is a research degree emphasizing extensive and original approaches to problem solving. Students typically earn an MS first, but may work directly toward the PhD if admitted directly to the PhD program.
*IMPORTANT UPDATE: GRE scores will not be required for students applying to Civil and Environmental Engineering graduate programs (MS or PhD) for spring, summer, or fall 2021 admission due to challenges taking the exam during the COVID-19 pandemic.
