Ph.D. Programs

The department offers graduate programs leading to Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degrees in Civil and Environmental Engineering, Geological Engineering, and Environmental Chemistry and Technology. The Ph.D. program is a research degree emphasizing extensive and original approaches to problem solving. Students typically earn an MS first, but may work directly toward the Ph.D. if admitted directly to the Ph.D. program. The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering takes great pride in its achievements, which are reflected by both its graduate students who hold engineering leadership positions throughout the world, and its research publications, which have appeared in prominent engineering journals.

Our Ph.D. programs are as follows:

Our department is also affiliated with the interdisciplinary Freshwater and Marine Sciences Ph.D. Program.
