An advanced degree provides an edge when applying for senior-level positions or advancing to a higher level in an organization. Designed for working professionals, UW CEE offers several online master’s degree programs. The flexibility of an online program allows students to pursue a specialized focus while setting their own schedule, enabling them to participate from any location and work full-time.
Coursework is similar to in-person programs and students communicate closely with classmates and instructors online. Courses are taught by faculty from the UW departments of Civil & Environmental Engineering and Construction Management, as well as experts in the field.
Online courses are open to graduate students as electives across the College of Engineering. Students interested in specializing in a specific program should apply directly to the track.
