M.S.- Civil, Construction and Environmental Engineering, Ph.D.- Civil, Construction and Environmental Engineering
The master of science and doctor of philosophy degree programs are designed to provide graduate students with both broad fundamental knowledge and up-to-date information on current and emerging technologies. Students may enroll on either a full-time or part-time basis. Doctoral students and research-oriented master’s students (e.g., Plan A: thesis option) engage in research activities under the close supervision of their advisers, gradually learning to become independent researchers. Their projects are often supported by government and industry grants. Courses and research projects make significant use of the department’s extensive laboratory and computational facilities. Graduates find employment in industry, government, academia and research laboratories.
The Department of Civil, Construction and Environmental Engineering maintains laboratories related to studies in hydraulics, environmental engineering, engineering materials (including soils) and structural testing, as well as computational facilities. The Water Quality Center, the Transportation Research Center, and the Engineering Materials and Structural Testing Laboratory are associated with the department.
