The mission of the Master of Science program in Civil Engineering is to prepare students for careers in private and public practice of civil engineering and for advanced study in the field of civil engineering. The major emphasis of the program is to foster a deeper understanding of the engineering research process. Students in the program usually specialize in environmental engineering, structural engineering, water resources engineering, or pavement materials engineering.
Goal 1: Students will build on knowledge gained in their undergraduate program of study to achieve a fuller understanding of civil engineering and the engineering research process.
Goal 2: Students will perform a detailed research project in a specific focus area related to civil engineering.
Goal 3: Graduates will be prepared for a career in private or public practice in civil engineering and related fields and for further advanced study in the field of civil engineering.
