Civil engineering today is a dynamic, complex, and technologically sophisticated field. Powerful computational methods and high-strength materials have offered new opportunities and new challenges. The graduate program is designed to instill in the student the fundamental theoretical concepts of mechanics as well as practical knowledge of modern materials, structural, and systems engineering.
The Department of Civil Engineering graduate program offers three fundamental focus areas: Mechanics of Materials, Structures, and Systems.
