The Master of Civil Engineering program is included under the Department of Civil, Architectural, and Environmental Engineering which specializes in structural, geotechnical, and environmental engineering. Structural engineering emphasizes finite element methods, computer-aided structural analysis and design, pre-stressed concrete and plastic analysis. Geotechnical engineering focuses on advanced concepts in soil mechanics, soil dynamics, tunneling, earth dams and pavement design. Environmental engineering deals with water and wastewater treatment, chemical and biological unit operations, hazardous waste treatment and pollution prevention.
The Master of Civil Engineering program prepares students for careers as consulting engineers, engineers in industry and government, and researchers for university and industrial laboratories.
