The Master of Science (MS) degree in civil engineering is intended primarily for full-time graduate students. It requires a thesis or a final project. The MS Design Option provides a path for completion of the MS degree in two semesters (starting in the fall semester).
Students pursuing the MS degree in civil engineering can specialize in any of the following areas of civil engineering:
- Construction engineering and management
- Geotechnical engineering and Materials
- Structural engineering
- Transportation engineering
Students may start their graduate studies in the fall, spring or summer semester (except for students in the MS Design Option, who must start in the fall semester). A bachelor’s degree in a field of engineering is required for admission to the M.S. degree program in civil engineering.
