Applicants who are interested in taking graduate-level courses, but not necessarily interested in pursuing a full master’s degree may wish to apply to the Graduate Certificate program in Civil Engineering. Admission requirements for the Graduate Certificate in Civil Engineering are the same as those for the Master of Civil Engineering.
Once matriculated, if a student should later decide to pursue the full master’s degree, all successfully completed courses will apply towards that degree provided the courses meet the master's program requirements and that the remaining courses to be completed fall within a five-year time limit.
Five courses must be completed within five years. Each student will work with the program chair to design a program tailored to meet their individual goals. Focus areas are not available for students pursuing certificates. Course selections outside of those included in the Civil Engineering program requirements list are subject to advisor approval.
