Admission to the online M.S. in Civil Engineering is selective. It is strongly recommended that students applying for the program hold a B.S. in Civil Engineering. GRE scores are optional and not required for admission, but they may be required by some potential faculty sponsors to be considered for a Qualifying Graduate Assistantship.
Students who graduate with a BS in a field related to Civil Engineering, including Geology, Physics, Computer Science, or another non-Civil Engineering BS (e.g., Mechanical or Petroleum Engineering) are eligible to apply but may need to take additional pre-requisite course requirements.
The M.S. in Civil Engineering program is geared toward those students who hold an undergraduate degree in civil engineering and are looking to accelerate their careers. However, those who graduated with a B.S. in a field related to Civil Engineering, such as Geology, Physics, Computer Science, or another non-Civil Engineering B.S. (e.g., Mechanical or Petroleum Engineering) are eligible to apply but may need to take additional pre-requisite courses to meet educational requirements.
