Master of Science in Civil Engineering

Tailor your curricula with Missouri S&T's graduate program in civil engineering. With strong design and research components, this program emphasizes novel and sustainable infrastructure that improves built and natural environments. 

This is a non-thesis degree program and requires 30 credit hours to complete. Because of the broad nature of civil engineering, Missouri University of Science and Technology offers the following areas of study: 

  • Environmental Engineering courses can be tailored to fit the interest of the student, with strong courses in groundwater, soil remediation, air pollution control, and wastewater treatment. 
  • Structural Engineering general studies include reinforced concrete, cold-formed steel, fiber reinforced polymer composites, high performance concrete, seismic behavior of structures, damage detection. 
  • Geotechnical Engineering study includes courses in soil properties and their measurements, foundations, embankments, earth dams, soil mechanics, numerical modeling, soil dynamics and earthquake engineering. 
  • Water Resources Engineering courses are available in various specialty areas, including advanced hydraulics and hydrology, watershed and urban hydrology, physical and mathematical modeling, sediment transport, and river mechanics. 
  • Construction Engineering studies focus on managing the design and construction process, including estimating, scheduling, contracts, productivity, and project delivery systems.

Admission Requirements

  • Bachelor’s degree in an engineering discipline from an accredited program
  • Undergraduate GPA ≥ 3.0
  • GRE V+Q ≥ 300; GRE Q ≥ 150, and GRE WR  3.5
  • International requirement: TOEFL ≥ 80 iBT or IELTS ≥ 6.5
  • Students with non-civil engineering degrees may be required to take additional courses to prepare them for their advanced studies. In some cases, students with non-engineering degrees (e.g., chemistry, physics, geology, or biology) will be considered if deficiencies in mathematics, science and engineering are remedied.
