Professor Charles D. Shackelford, Department Head
Laurie Alburn, Graduate and Undergraduate Advisor
 

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering administers undergraduate and graduate degrees in Civil Engineering and an undergraduate degree in Environmental Engineering.

Graduate Programs in Civil and Environmental Engineering

In Civil Engineering, programs leading to the Master of Science (M.S.) and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degrees are offered. Focus areas include construction engineering and management (Ph.D. only), environmental engineering, geoengineering, groundwater engineering, hydraulic engineering/stream restoration and river mechanics, hydrologic science and engineering, irrigation and drainage engineering, structural engineering and structural mechanics, water and international development, water resources planning and management, wind engineering and fluid mechanics.

A practice-oriented, course-work only, Master of Engineering (M.E.) degree program is available to students with a baccalaureate degree in engineering. Graduates of some science programs also are eligible for the M.E., but typically are required to complete some background engineering courses at the undergraduate level in addition to the required courses for their graduate degree. Master of Engineering tracks are offered in environmental engineering, geotechnical engineering, infrastructure engineering, irrigation engineering, structural engineering, and water resources engineering.

Students interested in graduate work should refer to the Graduate and Professional Bulletin or the Civil Engineering Department.
