Students with an MS in Civil Engineering may satisfy the requirements of the degree of Engineer in Civil and Environmental Engineering by completing 45 unduplicated course work and research units for a total of 90 units.
Engineer candidates must submit an acceptable thesis (12 to 15 units) and maintain a minimum GPA of 3.0. The program of study must be approved by a faculty member in the department.
This degree is recommended for those desiring additional graduate education, especially those planning a career in professional practice. The thesis normally should be started in the first quarter of graduate study after the MS degree. Programs are offered in the fields of specialization mentioned for the MS degree. The Engineer thesis topic, for students who will continue study toward a CEE PhD, must be significantly different from their doctoral research.
Details of this degree program are published in the CEE Graduate Degrees Handbook.
