What will I learn?

Areas of Study

Civil Engineering Materials; Environmental and Water Resources Engineering; Geotechnical Engineering; Structural Mechanics; Structural/Earthquake Engineering; Structures and Civil Engineering Materials.

Course Requirements

There are two plans of study that lead to the M.S. degree: the capstone plan (comprehensive examination) and thesis plans. For both plans, at least nine courses (36 units) are required, a majority of which must be in the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department. At least five of the courses must be at the 200-level. In the thesis plan, seven of the nine must be 100- or 200-series courses. The remaining two may be 598 courses involving work on the thesis. In the capstone plan (comprehensive examination), 500-series courses may not be applied toward the nine-course requirement. Courses completed outside of the department must be equal in rigor and related to the Civil and Environmental Engineering program of study and recommended to be quantitative in nature.
