Civil Engineering Graduate Studies Program (CEGSP)
The Department of Civil, Environmental and Geodetic Engineering (CEGE) develops the skillful conception, planning, design, construction and operation of facilities that enfold modern life, ranging from smart urban services to intelligent infrastructure to earth observing systems.
World population growth and increased environmental concerns have spurred the need for civil, environmental and geodetic engineers. CEGE addresses these societal needs by preparing graduates to contribute to the improvement of infrastructure management and the protection of the environment.
The Civil Engineering Graduate Studies Program (CEGSP) offers an MS and PhD degree in Civil Engineering, with graduate tracks in the following areas: Environmental Engineering*, Geoinformation and Geodetic Engineering, Structural Engineering (including Geotechnnical Engineering), and Transportation Engineering.
Additionally, a dual MS degree is offered in Urban Transportation Planning in conjunction with the Department of City and Regional Planning in the Knowlton School.
*The Environmental Engineering graduate track is recognized as an official specialization for both the MS and PhD degree, which means it is posted in the permanent record upon graduation and appears on the final transcript.
