Admissions requirements

Admission to the M.S. program in civil and environmental engineering may be granted on a regular or qualified basis. Regular admission is considered for applicants who have achieved an overall honor point average (GPA) of 3.0 in completing an undergraduate engineering degree from an institution accredited by the Accrediting Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) or from a comparable foreign institution. In the event that the degree is in an engineering field other than civil and environmental engineering, the student may be required to complete a set of pre-requisite undergraduate courses before graduate credit may be accrued.

Only in exceptional cases will a student without an undergraduate engineering background be admitted to the civil and environmental engineering graduate program. In such cases, significant undergraduate pre-requisite work will be required.

International students are required to submit a qualifying TOEFL or IELTS English Proficiency score and a WES Evaluation.

All M.S. applicants have the option to submit a one-page statement of purpose.  Applications are submitted through the Graduate School application.
