Graduate Studies

Students come from all over the world to study and engage in research at the UW Civil and Environmental Engineering Department. Our award-winning faculty and cutting-edge research attract top scholars in the engineering field. We are consistently ranked by US News & World Report in the top 20 US engineering graduate programs.

I'm looking for information about:

  • Master's Degree Programs
    A master's degree is for candidates who desire an advanced understanding of Civil and Environmental Engineering. The MSCE degree is perhaps the most versatile postgraduate degree; it can increase competitiveness in the job market, advance an existing career, or serve as a gateway to a PhD degree. CEE at UW offers master's degree programs in six specialty areas with thesis and non-thesis options. 
  • Online Master's Programs
    Pursue an advanced degree on a schedule that works for you. CEE currently has three online Master’s degree programs: Construction Engineering, Sustainable Transportation, and Supply Chain Transportation and Logistics.
  • PhD Studies
    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.

  • 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.
