Learning Outcomes

  • Graduates will be able to demonstrate expertise in a core subject area of civil and environmental engineering. Core subject areas of study include Environmental Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering, Structural Engineering, Transportation Engineering, and Water Resources Engineering. 
  • Graduates will demonstrate a working knowledge of various areas of civil and environmental engineering (including Environmental Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering, Structural Engineering, Transportation Engineering, and Water Resource Engineering) and related fields, including other engineering disciplines, the sciences, and mathematics. 
  • Graduates will be able to describe and discuss advances of knowledge in civil and environmental engineering.
  • Graduates will demonstrate the basic skills (e.g., leadership, presentation, time managements, problem solving, study, and organizing) required for life-long learning and professional development. 

Degree Requirements (30 Hours)

For the Master of Engineering degree, a total of 30 credit hours of course work are required.

Six Additional Lecture Courses (18 Hours):


Two of the six additional courses (6 hours) must be chemical engineering lecture courses, and the remaining four courses (12 hours) may be from business, chemistry, engineering, or mathematics. A program of independent study (ECHE 797 , three or six credit hours) may be substituted for one or two of the remaining four lecture courses. At least five of the lecture courses (15 hours) required for the Master of Engineering degree must be numbered 700 and above. Proposals for programs of independent study must be submitted and approved by the faculty of the department before the work is initiated.

Advisement:


The graduate director serves as the academic advisor for M.E. students.

Comprehensive Examination:


Each M.E. candidate must pass a comprehensive examination before graduation. Students should consult the graduate director for information on the format and subjects of the comprehensive examination.

Note:


No foreign language is required for any graduate degree in chemical engineering. Additional requirements follow.
