Graduate study in civil engineering and chemical engineering provides students with the scientific and professional knowledge necessary for their field of interest and develops student abilities to formulate solutions to new and complex problems in the context of current environmental, social, and economic considerations. These objectives are accomplished by flexible plans of study designed to meet the needs of the program’s graduate students. Graduates find fulfilling careers in private industry, private consulting practice, and governmental service and are prepared for doctoral-level work leading to research/teaching careers. The program includes thesis, nonthesis, and engineering management plans and offers opportunities for advanced study in two main areas—environmental engineering and structural/transportation. Students with a chemical engineering background may pursue the environmental engineering option or develop a self-directed plan with a chemical engineering emphasis. Cooperative Ph.D. programs with The University of Akron and Cleveland State University are also available, allowing students to begin doctoral study at YSU. Facilities for advanced study and research are located in Moser Hall, which houses a variety of well-equipped laboratories. These include the structures and materials lab, hydraulics/fluid mechanics lab, environmental engineering lab, and geotechnical engineering lab. In addition, the college computer lab provides access to a large number of modern PCs with high-speed Internet connections.
