2017-2018 Graduate Catalog

Civil Engineering (Ph.D.)


Doctoral degree requirements


The general requirements for admission to the Civil Engineering  graduate program include the receipt of a bachelor of science degree from an accredited civil engineering department and evidence that the applicant has the ability to do satisfactory graduate work. However, students not possessing a degree in civil engineering may be admitted if their undergraduate work is closely related to a specific discipline within the civil engineering program and they complete a core program of undergraduate civil engineering course work.

Students admitted for work toward a master of science degree can select a program of study requiring the completion of a master’s thesis or a master’s report within their area of interest. Students admitted for work toward a doctor of philosophy degree are required to develop an original research program, and complete a doctoral dissertation under the guidance of faculty members from the College of Engineering.

For information about the Ph.D. program, see the Engineering section of this catalog.
