The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering has two distinct advanced degree programs: MS and PhD. Our Master of Science (MS) program is intended to be a terminal degree for those seeking advanced knowledge in a focused discipline of civil and environmental engineering to pursue a career in industry or another professional degree (e.g., law, business). It is based on the completion of coursework focused on a theme within the discipline. No thesis is required, nor is research required.

Admissions

Most part-time students take an average of 3 to 5 years to complete the 45-unit requirement. You must complete a Master's degree within 5 years of starting the program.

Note that while some of the courses of this degree can be completed online, most courses in the Civil and Environmental Engineering department are offered only on campus. Specific online course offerings depend heavily on your program plan, area of focus, and the course offerings for any given academic quarter. You may find it helpful to compare the degree requirements with SCPD’s typical course offerings to see how much of this degree can be completed online.
