I'm looking for information about:
- Master's Degree Programs
CEE offers two Master's degree tracks: a research-intensive track and a coursework-only professional track. The primary criterion for admission to either track is the applicant's ability to progress satisfactorily in a graduate degree program, as judged by faculty in the program.
To be considered for admission, applicants must hold a baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or university in the US or its equivalent from a foreign institution. They must also have achieved a 3.0 minimum GPA (based on 4.0 scale) from the last 60 graded semester hours or last 90 graded quarter hours in their undergraduate or post-graduate academic coursework. In practice, substantially higher grades may be necessary for admission to the graduate program.
The Doctor of Philosophy degree is intended for candidates with a high level of scholarship and with the ability and desire to conduct independent and original research in their chosen field of interest.
- Online Programs
Pursue an advanced degree on a schedule that works for you. CEE currently has two online Master’s degree programs, Construction Engineering and Sustainable Transportation. An online Master's degree program in Supply Chain Transporation and Logistics is currently under development.
- Visiting Graduate Students
Students actively pursuing a graduate degree at another accredited academic institution.
- Graduate Nonmatriculated Students
A Graduate Nonmatriculated student is not currently seeking a degree but may apply credits taken as GNM toward a graduate degree.
