Curriculum Notes

With permission of the program director or the department chair:

  • Students may transfer a maximum of six semester hours for graduate engineering courses taken at other accredited engineering colleges, provided they are deemed relevant. Students must have taken the courses within the past five years and achieved a grade of “B” (3.00) or better. These may replace core classes or elective classes listed above if deemed equivalent.
  • Students may apply up to six credits of 4000-level civil engineering courses (senior-level electives) to the MCEM program. These would replace elective courses listed above.
  • A maximum of two electives may be chosen from other graduate programs in Civil Engineering or related fields if deemed relevant to the MCEM program.

Program Student Outcomes

During the course of study, students are expected to:

  • Integrate components into a complete project management plan for a complex civil engineering project.
  • Analyze effective and persuasive communication to technical and nontechnical audiences.
  • Develop practices and requirements to achieve sustainable performance of complex civil engineering projects from a systems perspective.
  • Integrate professional responsibilities relevant to the practice of civil engineering, including safety, legal issues, licensure, credentialing, and innovation.
  • Analyze ethical dilemmas to determine possible courses of action.
