What will I learn?

Areas of Study

Architectural Engineering

Graduate study focuses on design and managing of sustainable building systems in a choice of structures, construction, mechanical and electrical systems. Courses in several multi-disciplinary areas are available to develop a plan of studies that fits the interests and needs of each individual student.

Construction Materials

Graduate studies focus on a wide range of construction materials used in civil engineering projects, such as aggregate, asphalt, concrete, pavements and masonry. Typically, students obtaining graduate degrees in construction materials have a related emphasis depending on their career goals.

Construction Engineering

Graduate study focuses on managing the design and construction process, including the construction engineering to get the job done. Coursework includes estimating, scheduling, contracts, productivity, and project delivery systems. Courses in Civil Engineering design areas and Engineering Management are available to develop a multidisciplinary plan of studies that fits the interests and needs of each individual student.

Environmental Engineering

Current research activities encompass physical/chemical/biological wastewater treatment, hazardous waste treatment, drinking water treatment, groundwater and soil remediation, and indoor air pollution control. While the program is tailored to the individual, it provides students with a strong background in fundamental chemical, biological, physical and environmental systems.

Geotechnical Engineering

Programs of study in this area offer courses in soil properties and their measurements, foundations, embankments, retaining structures, earth dams, soil mechanics, numerical modeling, soil dynamics and earthquake engineering. Extensive equipment is available in the three separate geotechnical engineering laboratories equipped with standard and advanced equipment, including dynamic soil testing (cyclic triaxial and resonant column).

Structural Engineering

Graduate studies in structural engineering include experimental research in the core areas of cold-formed steel, fiber reinforced polymer composites, high performance concrete, constitutive modeling of reinforced and pre-stressed concrete, seismic behavior of structures, and damage detection. This includes the application of concrete, composite, steel, and masonry materials to structures.

Transportation Engineering

Graduate study focuses on developing and applying advanced network models, traffic flow theories, data analytics and simulation techniques to enhance the efficiency and safety of transportation systems. It has both the “traditional" aspect of civil engineering such as transportation planning, traffic operation, signal control and system management, and the “new” and “non-traditional” aspects such as rapid and disruptive technologies being developed and introduced into the field.

Water Resources Engineering

The program of studies in this area includes courses in advanced hydraulics and hydrology, advanced fluid mechanics, mathematical modeling and environmental hydraulics. Areas of research interest are watershed and urban hydrology, physical and mathematical modeling, sediment transport, river mechanics and environmental hydraulics.

Entry requirements

For students from United States

Admission as a regular graduate student is normally limited to those who ranked in the upper third of their baccalaureate graduating class or who have done quality work at the graduate level. For this requirement, a cumulative B average (3.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale), or a B average (3.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale) for the student’s last sixty credit hours of undergraduate coursework is considered equivalent to an upper one-third standing. English Language Requirement: TOEFL: 80; IELTS: 6.5; PTE: 58; Duolingo: 105.

For international students

M.S. degree in engineering with a GPA of at least 3.0 (4.0 scale).

Students applying for a graduate degree program at S&T must meet one of the minimum scores: TOEFL: 80; IELTS: 6.5; PTE: 58; Duolingo: 105.

Application Deadlines: Fall Semester - June 15; Spring Semester - November 15; Summer Semester - April 1.

*There may be different IELTS requirements depending on your chosen course.
