The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering offers graduate study and research leading to the Master of Science in Civil Engineering and Doctor of Philosophy degrees. Also offered is a joint degree program resulting in a second Master of Science degree in mathematics, and a joint degree program with the Katz Graduate School of Business resulting in a MBA degree. The MS in Civil Engineering and the PhD in engineering may be pursued in one of the following four areas:

The Master of Science degree in Civil and Environmental Engineering is primarily designed for students with an undergraduate degree in engineering, although students with other backgrounds can be accommodated with specially designed programs. An MS degree can be pursued by either a full-time or part-time student in one of the following areas:

  • Construction Management and Green Construction
  • Environmental Engineering
  • Geotechnical and Pavement Engineering
  • Structural Engineering and Mechanics
  • Sustainability and Green Design
  • Transportation Engineering
  • Water Resources Engineering
  • Mining Certificate

The areas of study for the Ph.D. in Civil Engineering in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering within the Swanson School of Engineering are divided into two integrated research areas and sub-component specialty areas as follows:

  • Sustainability and the Environmental (SEE):
    • Environmental Engineering;
    • Sustainability and Green Design; and
    • Water Resources Engineering
  • Advanced Infrastructure Systems (AIS).
    • Geotechnical and Pavements;
    • Structural Engineering and Mechanics; and
    • Transportation Engineering.
