Education That Works
Our students work hard. In turn, our department works hard for them. The undergraduate and graduate degrees we offer focus on five different research areas in materials science and engineering. As leaders in research and teaching, we prepare our graduates to excel in their careers and make a difference in the world.
Bachelor of Science
Our ABET-accredited B.S. degrees certify engineering professionals. Read more about our undergraduate programs and various student and career opportunities.
Our Bachelor’s Degrees
Our Master of Science degree (MSMSE) with thesis is intended for graduate students interested in advanced research. Our non-thesis master’s degrees (MMMSE, MNAE) are designed to prepare students for professional engineering careers and can be completed online or in the classroom.
Doctor of Philosophy
The Doctor of Philosophy in Civil Engineering is pursued by outstanding students with an intense interest in independent study and research. It requires advanced coursework and research beyond the master’s degree, a written and oral comprehensive preliminary examination, a written dissertation, and a final oral defense of the research.
