2021-2022 Graduate Catalog 
2021-2022 Graduate Catalog [FINAL EDITION]

Civil Engineering, MSE


The civil engineering program is designed to provide a balance of traditional civil engineering subjects with courses exploring innovative technologies currently evolving into specializations with significant professional activities. Technical electives make it possible either to concentrate study in traditional areas or to augment course work with emerging technologies. The group of required courses provides depth of knowledge and an analytical perspective that sets the specialized technical electives in context. The environmental engineering option provides the background to apply advanced techniques to environmental problems, an important area of professional activity for civil engineers.

The flexibility of the curriculum allows students to design a program of study tailored to individual career goals and to the demands of the ever-changing marketplace. Students entering the program are normally expected to have a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering. However, in certain cases students with undergraduate backgrounds in related engineering or science disciplines may qualify for admission and will be considered on an individual basis.

The MSE degree can be completed with a thesis or non-thesis option.  Students pursuing thesis must enroll in ENGR 691   and ENGR 692   in lieu of two technical electives.


Thesis/Non-Thesis (6 Credits)

Total Credits: 30

*Must include ENGR 616  or ENGR 618 .  It is recommended that students interested in environmental/water resources take ENGR 618 .  It is recommended that students interested in structural engineering take ENGR 636  in addition to ENGR 616  or ENGR 618 .

The program of study that appears here applies to students who were admitted for the summer session of this catalog year and later.  Students admitted prior to that term should select the appropriate catalog year of their admission.  Choose previous catalogs from the Home, Graduate, or Undergraduate Catalog Page at http://Catalog.widener.edu.
