# Master of Engineering in Civil Engineering

The Civil Engineering graduate program offers courses in Structural, Geotechnical, and Water Resources Engineering. Courses in Structural Engineering address the mathematical and computational bases in the analysis of structures such as tall buildings and bridges, and the use of standards and building codes in the design of structures to withstand internal and external loads. Courses in Geotechnical Engineering deal with the investigation and analysis of construction sites, sub-surface conditions, the design of shallow and deep foundations, retaining structures, dams and tunnels. Courses in Water Resources Engineering emphasize the design and analysis of watersheds, hydrological modeling, and water quality. Additional courses available in transportation systems, mechanics, construction engineering, construction management, marine structures, and environmental engineering can be used to enhance and complement the educational experience. Graduates in Civil Engineering are prepared to work in the engineering and construction industry to design, inspect, and oversee the construction of structures, earthworks, watersheds, and other civil works.

For a Master in Engineering (ME) - Civil Engineering, a student must complete a total of 30 credits at the 500-level or above. At least one course must be taken from the core courses listed below.

The remaining credits are considered electives and can be chosen from any of the courses listed below under Structural, Water Resources, Geotechnical or General Civil Engineering, allowing for a combination of courses to satisfy the interest and curiosity of the student.

To satisfy the design requirements of the program, at least two of the electives must be chosen from any of the design- intensive courses marked by an asterisk.

The student can also substitute up to two of the elective courses by any course offered at Stevens at the 500-level or above, as pre-approved by a faculty advisor.

A thesis is optional and may substitute for six to nine credits of electives. The thesis option is strongly recommended for full- time students, those receiving financial support, or those planning to pursue doctoral studies.
