Take Your  Career to the Next Level

The Online M.S. in Civil Engineering is an accelerated, 32-credit hour program which can be completed in 21 months while working full-time. Students learn from top faculty and industry leaders in a flexible online learning environment. Coursework can be completed at a time and place most convenient to the student.

The online M.S. in Civil Engineering is a 32-credit hour program, completed in 21 months while working full-time. Build the skills you need to ensure safety and stability of structures from the ground up with the Geotechnical Engineering track for our online M.S. in Civil Engineering. This option extends the skills taught in the first two modules of the program with an intensive focus on geologic media, soil-structure interactions, runoff and pollutants, foundation construction principles, and more.

You will apply key equations, analytical methods, and industry-standard software tools to solve real-world problems in the field and complete an open-ended design project which synthesizes principles taught in the curriculum.

Who This Track is For

The Geotechnical Engineering track is for undergraduate-qualified engineers who want to:

  • Develop advanced design and analysis skills for foundation and environment considerations, or change specialties;
  • Earn professional development credit that may be applied towards professional licensure in their state, and
  • Connect with a global network of engineering professionals as well as our industry-experienced faculty.

Working online through our best-in-class interface, you can finish this degree in as few as 21 months.

The online M.S. in Civil Engineering is a 32-credit hour program, completed in 21 months while working full-time. This program features a Structural Engineering track that can advance your practical design skills and equip you for analytical or experimental research. Building on the common foundation modules, the Structural Engineering track dives deep into properties, fabrication methods, and applications of wood, steel and concrete.

The curriculum teaches key equations and analysis methods for determining the safety and soundness of structures made from these materials, including soil-structure interactions and the fundamentals of earthquake safety engineering.

As a capstone to your program, you will complete an open-ended design project which demonstrates your understanding of the principles taught in the curriculum through practical application to a real-world problem.

Who This Track is For

The Structural Engineering track is for undergraduate-qualified engineers who want to:

  • Pursue structural engineering at an advanced level or as a new specialty;
  • Earn professional development credit that may be applied towards professional licensure in their state, and
  • Connect with a global network of engineering professionals and our industry-experienced faculty.

Presented through a best-in-class online interface, you can finish this degree in as few as 21 months.

The online M.S. in Civil Engineering is a 32-credit hour program, completed in 21 months while working full-time. This program features a Transportation Engineering track that will explore the impetus, philosophy, and policy for implementing a long term, comprehensive plan for managing infrastructure assets. Building on the common foundation modules, the Transportation Engineering track dives deep into engineering and economic analysis concepts and processes used to evaluate and support strategic and systematic investment, performance, and management of a transportation system.

The curriculum teaches the key elements involved in the planning and financing of transportation infrastructure projects and systems, and the study of transportation functions and transportation systems 

As a capstone to your program, you will complete an open-ended design project which demonstrates your understanding of the principles taught in the curriculum through practical application to a real-world problem.

Who This Track is For

The Transportation Engineering track is for undergraduate-qualified engineers who want to:

  • Understand the planning, functional design, and management of facilities for any mode of transportation to provide for the safe and efficient movement of people and goods
  • Earn professional development credit that may be applied towards professional licensure in their state, and
  • Connect with a global network of engineering professionals as well as our industry-experienced faculty.
