Program Description

PhD in Civil and Environmental Engineering

Admission Requirements

An MS degree from a program in Civil and Environmental Engineering or other engineering discipline is required for admission. Applicants with both BS and MS degrees in disciplines other than engineering may be required to demonstrate proficiency through additional undergraduate coursework as determined by the departmental Graduate Committee. This may comprise an additional semester of study for which graduate credit cannot be granted.

No minimum grade point average is required for admission. However, a superior record of academic achievement is expected of all applicants.
