  • Civil Engineering
    The Civil and Environmental Engineering Department is proud of its prestigious graduate program, known nationwide.Graduate Students


    • Structural Engineering and Mechanics
    • Transportation & Geotechnical  Engineering
    • Environmental and Water Resources Engineering
    • Spatial Engineering Technology
  • Computer Engineering
  • Electrical Engineering
    Thesis and non-thesis options are available for the M.S. Computer Engineering. For a non-thesis degree, a minimum of 30 semester hours of course work is required. Thesis options require 30 credit hours of which six credits of ECE699 shall be devoted to individual study with a member of the graduate faculty. This work must culminate in the preparation of a written thesis on a significant problem of common interest, and an oral defense of the thesis. To obtain a masters degree in Computer Engineering, a student must have at least a GPA of 3.0 for all courses taken as a graduate student.
  • Mechanical Engineering
    The Department of Mechanical Engineering offers a Master of Science and Ph.D.  in the fields of thermal-fluid science and engineering mechanics. Admission is based on an appropriate baccalaureate degree and the requirements of the Graduate School. Persons holding a bachelor’s degree in another engineering discipline or in a science may be admitted. In such cases it may be required that some undergraduate courses be taken without graduate credit.
