Civil Engineering—MS

The Master of Science in Civil Engineering is designed for the pursuit of advanced civil engineering studies. The program integrates course work and/or research in a range of civil engineering topics, examined from both a theoretical/mathematical standpoint and an application/design standpoint.

Under the guidance of an advisory committee, students tailor an academic plan to their individual interests and professional goals, choosing an area of emphasis from the following or combining two or more of these areas into an individual emphasis:

  • Civil engineering materials
  • Geotechnical engineering
  • Infrastructure engineering
  • Intelligent infrastructure design
  • Structural engineering
  • Transportation engineering
  • Water resource engineering
  • Geospatial engineering
