The M.C.E. requires 30 credit-hours of graduate courses in civil engineering and other subjects relevant to the student's area of specialization. The program does not require a thesis or final examination.

M.C.E. students may take any graduate courses offered by the Department of Civil, Environmental and Architectural Engineering, including courses in construction management (course prefixes CE, ARCE and CMGT). Students may also take up to three course in the Engineering Management or Project Management program (course prefixes EMGT and PMGT).
