Overview

This MS is designed for students who have completed a bachelor's degree in civil engineering, although students with related undergraduate degrees may be considered for provisional admission. The MS educates students in the theory and practice of civil engineering science and design, with a technical concentration. The master's degree is increasingly expected for high level practice in civil engineering, and prepares graduates to practice in civil engineering for: federal, state, or local government; engineering design firms; construction firms; public utilities; non-governmental organizations; and local and regional planning firms, among others. The MS degree serves as a foundation for subsequent study in a doctoral program in civil engineering, as well as for graduate studies in architecture, law, business, economics, finance, and public policy and administration.

Both part-time and full-time study is available. Full-time students typically complete the degree in one and a half, to two years.

Admissions

To be considered for admission to the program, a candidate must:

  • Satisfy general University and Volgenau School requirements for admission to a graduate program,
  • Have earned a baccalaureate degree in engineering or a related science,
  • Provide two letters of reference, submitted by former professors or supervisors,
  • Provide a goals statement and professional résumé.

Acceptance to the degree program is based on an assessment of the applicant's capacity to pursue graduate studies successfully. Consideration is given to the undergraduate record, any previous graduate work, professional work experience, and reference letters.
