In addition to meeting the university's general graduate admission requirements, applicants must meet specific requirements of the MSCE program. Applicants must hold a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from an independently accredited university recognized by AUS. Degreed individuals in engineering fields or a quantitative science field that is closely related to the program may be considered on a case-by-case basis.
An applicant with a bachelor's degree in technology (or less than four years of university-level work) will not normally be admitted to our program.
Students in this program choose from two options: a thesis option and a non-thesis (professional project) option. For more information on program requirements and course descriptions, please check our online catalogs.
A complete guide for preparing the thesis/project is available on the Office of Graduate Studies ilearn page.
