M.S. in Civil Engineering

Students may pursue the M.S. degree in any of the Civil Engineering Department programs. The M.S.degree requires completion of a minimum of thirty-one (30) credits of work, including a thesis. 

A research experience, acceptable to the student’s graduate committee, is required of all M.S. students. The M.S. student prepares a thesis that is submitted to the student’s graduate committee and defended at the oral comprehensive examination. 

Candidates for the M.S. degree must pass a comprehensive examination near the completion of their graduate program.  Students are expected to be familiar with the degree requirements of both the department and The Graduate School.

Curriculum requirements are highly individualized and established in consultation with and approved by the student's graduate committee.
