The Civil Engineering Department offers a graduate program of study leading to a Master of Science Degree in Civil Engineering in the following areas:
Environmental/Water Quality Engineering - environmental quality analysis and management, water and waste treatment, control of toxic substances;
Geotechnical Engineering - properties and behavior of soil and their application to practical problems, soil improvement and ground stabilization, and soil dynamics and earthquake engineering;
Structural Engineering - earthquake resistant steel and concrete design applied to buildings and bridges, structural dynamics, structural mechanics and finite element methods;
Transportation Engineering - traffic flow, planning theory and system management applicable to all modes with emphasis on highway and rail passenger transportation;
Interdisciplinary Study with other areas of civil engineering as well as with nonengineering areas (e.g., Environmental Studies, Geography, Government, and Organization Behavior and Environment) may also be arranged;
Water Resources Engineering - advanced hydraulics and modern hydrologic techniques, flood forecasting, groundwater flow modeling, water resources management and policy formulation.
