Master of Science in Civil Engineering
The 30-hour master of science in civil engineering (MSCE) prepares graduates for thriving engineering careers characterized by continued professional growth. Graduates are given unique opportunities to acquire the talents and skills needed in a highly technical society facing serious uncertainties and challenges in the environment and infrastructure. The program provides you with the broad scope necessary for a fruitful and successful career in the practice of civil engineering and construction management. It is designed for students with undergraduate CE or construction degrees; however, you may be considered for conditional admittance if you have a bachelor’s degree in another engineering or related field. Students are not required to take the GRE general test for admission into our MSCE program.
Preparing You For Success
As a student in the graduate civil engineering program, you can strengthen your knowledge of construction management, structural engineering, geo-environmental engineering or transportation engineering. In addition to choosing a concentration, you can select a thesis or non-thesis option to complete your program requirements. Selected courses in other engineering departments, the college of business and computer science are permissible. The program’s flexibility provides you with a wide variety of means to prepare for your future careers. Check the graduate catalogue for other program requirements.
To meet the needs of industry and students, the department is committed to equipping facilities with the most sophisticated software and hardware available. This provides a vivid example of the commitment to excellence and persistent drive that has become the hallmark of our department. The departmental goal is to provide an educational experience that is nationally and internationally recognized. Our students and faculty aspire to be leaders in their respective fields on and off campus.
Making Your Mark
Bradley’s civil engineering program successfully prepares you to enter or advance in the workforce. It is quite unique and offers opportunities that may not be available at larger research-oriented institutions. Some of CEC’s graduate program attractive features are its size, flexibility and practicality. Many of the program’s graduates went on to complete a doctoral degree or are accomplished professionals and leaders at organizations such as the Illinois Department of Transportation and major companies around the world.
