Students will have a working knowledge of detailed hydraulic and hydrologic design and planning and operation of water resources systems and be prepared to apply these concepts in practice.
The department offers programs leading to the Master of Science and the Doctor of Philosophy degrees with a major in Civil Engineering and Engineering Mechanics. Work is directed toward research and professional development in such areas as engineering mechanics, engineering materials, highway engineering, hydraulics and fluid mechanics, geomechanics, geo-technical engineering, water resources, structural engineering, and transportation engineering. Certain interdisciplinary options such as regional development and urban planning, and environmental engineering are available by combining various areas of the program with programs in other departments. For further information concerning these options, see the College of Engineering web site.
The department also offers a degree in Master of Science, Masters of Engineering, an Accelerated Masters Degree in both MS and ME degrees and has three certificate programs; Advance Transportation, Geoengineering and Hydraulics and Water Resources Engineering.
