Graduate Admission and Graduate Studies

laurenThe Department of Civil Engineering offers graduate-level instruction and research programs leading to the degrees of Master of Civil Engineering (M.C.E.) (non-thesis), Master of Science (M.S.) with thesis and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.). The objectives of these programs are to provide qualified students an opportunity for advanced training and specialization and to enable them to gain experience in conducting engineering research and in the interpretation and communication of their findings. The department offers programs in construction engineering and management, environmental engineering, geotechnical engineering, hydraulics/hydrology, pavements and materials, structural engineering and transportation engineering. Course work may be taken outside the department in supportive disciplines such as applied statistics, building science, computer science or mathematics.

All applicants should have a bachelor's degree in civil engineering or a closely related field from an institute of recognized standing. The applicant can apply for Ph.D. program with or without M.C.E./M.S. degree in civil engineering or a closely related field. Additional work may be required for applicants who lack the necessary background. The general test of the graduate record examination is mandatory.

Additional course work for applicants with a degree from other specialty areas:

Additional course work may be prescribed as prerequisites upon faculty review and communicated with the student. The prerequisites must be completed before official admission to the graduate program. Qualified domestic students may be provisionally admitted, but these prerequisites must be completed within a certain time frame (usually within a year) to receive official admission. No provisional admission is available for international students.
