Master of Science Civil Engineering

The Master of Science in Civil Engineering (MSCE) program was developed for graduates of accredited undergraduate engineering programs in civil engineering who maintained a 3.0 GPA. However, the Graduate Admissions Committee will consider provisional admission for others, provided they demonstrate aptitude for doing graduate work in this area and hold a bachelor of science degree in a related technical field. International students are required to submit an official TOEFL or IELTS score to demonstrate their English proficiency.


You will work with the Admissions Office and the Graduate Admissions Committee during the application process. The Admissions Office will collect the information and the Graduate Admissions Committee will evaluate the information for acceptance.

  2. Have official transcripts of all college work sent to the Admissions Office to be included in your file.
  3. Upload your resume.
  4. Provide one letter of recommendation, preferably more, from employers and professors 
  5. Your statement of purpose is optional, but it can help the Graduate Admissions Committee understand what you plan to do with the degree and why you have chosen LTU.

If the Graduate Admissions Committee grants you provisional admission, you may be required to enroll in pre-core crossover courses before being allowed to enroll in some of the core program courses. No graduate credit will be granted for these pre-requisite courses.
