Master of Engineering in Civil Engineering
The Master of Engineering in Civil Engineering degree 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, subsurface 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.
Program Objectives
The program prepares students to:

achieve excellence in engineering analysis and design.

attain leadership careers in their profession.

pursue advanced degrees in engineering research.
Program Outcomes
By the time of graduation, students will have:

a deeper understanding of the mechanics, mathematics, and numerical methods of their area of study.

specialized knowledge in a chosen area.

the ability to do independent advanced study.
Degree Requirements
The program is a 30credit degree program. Students are required to complete:

at least 1 core course (3 credits)

the remaining credits are considered electives and can be chosen from any of the courses under structural, water resources, geotechnical or general civil engineering, allowing for a combination of courses to satisfy the interest and curiosity of the student.

at least 2 electives (6 credits) must be designintensive courses (CE 508, CE 525, CE 535, CE 576, CE 578, CE 579, CE 595, CE 621, CE 626, CE 660, CE 685, CE 649, EN 553, OE 520)
Students can also substitute up to 2 of the elective courses by any 500level or above course offered at Stevens, as preapproved by a faculty advisor.
A thesis is optional and may substitute 6 to 9 credits of electives. The thesis option is strongly recommended for fulltime students, those receiving financial support, or those planning to pursue doctoral studies.
