M.S. Civil Engineering

Explores the capabilities of modern management technologies and how to successfully leverage these tools to maximize project efficiencies and teamwork for real-world engineering and construction initiatives. With specializations in structural design and construction, transportation and construction management.

Summary

Today's civil engineers are in the forefront of technology. They are the leading users of sophisticated high-tech products – applying the very latest concepts in computer-aided design (CAD) to support design, construction, project scheduling, and cost control. Civil engineering encompasses the planning, design, construction, and operation of facilities essential to modern life, ranging from transit systems to offshore structures to space satellites. Civil engineers are problem solvers, meeting the challenges of pollution, traffic congestion, drinking water and energy needs, urban redevelopment, and community planning. As the technological revolution expands, as the world's population increases, and as environmental concerns mount, the civil engineer has a vital role to play in improving the quality of life for the 21st century.

As a student in the online MSCE program, you can enhance your quantitative decision-making skills and learn how to justify managerial decisions with data. You will also explore the capabilities of modern management technologies and discover how to successfully leverage these tools to maximize efficiencies in your projects and on your teams. As you work through the program’s project-based curriculum, you can begin to apply your leadership and project planning methods to real-world engineering and construction initiatives.
