Students pursuing the Ph.D. degree in civil engineering can specialize in any of the following areas of civil engineering:

  • Construction engineering and management
  • Geotechnical engineering
  • Structural engineering
  • Transportation engineering
  • Water resources engineering
  • Building mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) systems

Students may start their graduate studies in the fall, spring or summer semester. A bachelor’s degree in a field of engineering is required for admission to the Ph.D. degree program in civil engineering.

Exceptionally well-qualified baccalaureate degree holders may be accepted directly into the fast-track Ph.D. degree program without prior completion of a master’s degree.  Students in the fast-track Ph.D. program are not required to write a master’s thesis or complete the M.S. degree en route to the Ph.D.

Most full-time doctoral students in civil engineering receive financial support from research assistantships, teaching assistantships, fellowships and scholarships.
