Master of Science
Doctor of Philosophy
Construction Engineering, Environmental and Water Resources Engineering, Structural Engineering and Structural Mechanics, Transportation Engineering and Materials
The master of science and doctor of philosophy degree programs are designed to provide graduate students with both broad fundamental knowledge and up-to-date information on current and emerging technologies. Students may enroll on either a full-time or part-time basis. Doctoral students and research-oriented master’s students (e.g., Plan A: thesis option) engage in research activities under the close supervision of their advisers, gradually learning to become independent researchers. Their projects are often supported by government and industry grants. Courses and research projects make significant use of the department’s extensive laboratory and computational facilities. Graduates find employment in industry, government, academia and research laboratories.
The Department of Civil, Construction and Environmental Engineering maintains laboratories related to studies in hydraulics, environmental engineering, engineering materials (including soils) and structural testing, as well as computational facilities. The Water Quality Center, the Transportation Research Center, and the Engineering Materials and Structural Testing Laboratory are associated with the department.

Rolling admission; this means you may apply any time before August 1 for fall term admissions (June 1 for international applicants) and December 15 for spring term admissions (October 15 for international applicants). These are the dates by which your applications must be complete, meaning that all required documentation must be received in the Graduate School by these dates.
However, applicants who wish to be considered for merit-based financial aid (graduate assistantships/fellowships), please be aware of the merit-based financial aid deadlines by which all applicant materials must be received by the Graduate School: Fall (August) Term: February 15, Spring (January) Term: November 15, Summer (May) Term: April 15.
Merit-based aid (graduate assistantships/fellowships) is available. Private scholarships may also be available. U.S. citizens and permanent residents may be eligible to apply for need-based federal aid (loans) to help fund their educational expenses as well.
