Comments about Master of Science in Civil Engineering - At the institution - Villanova - Pennsylvania

  • Course description

    The Master of Science in Civil Engineering degree is offered with these possible concentrations:

    Fields of Concentration
    • Environmental Engineering
    • Geotechnical Engineering
    • Structural Engineering
    • Transportation Engineering
    • Water Resources Engineering
    • Interdisciplinary Program  which combines two areas of interest from the following field:
      • Environmental Engineering
      • Geotechnical Engineering
      • Structural Engineering
      • Transportation Engineering
      • Water Resources Engineering

    The combination of Environmental Engineering and Water Resources Engineering is formalized in the M.S. in Water Resources & Environmental Engineering degree; however, students who qualify for the MSCE degree may elect the MSCE degree. 


    The Application Process
    The applicant must demonstrate the ability to master graduate-level studies. The evaluation is based on a review of the formal application submitted, transcripts from all previous colleges attended, and letters of recommendation.

    Applicants whose native language is not English must also give evidence of adequate proficiency in the English language determined by:
    • TOEFL examination score
    • Graduate Record Examination
    • GRE (General Test)

    MSCE Degree Criteria

    To earn the MSCE degree, the candidate would normally hold a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering (BSCE) degree from an Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) accredited program or its equivalent. A candidate with a degree in another engineering or related field is eligible provided he/she can present evidence of proficiency in:
    • Mathematics
    • Basic and engineering science
    • Computer literacy
    • Engineering design consistent with ABET's Criteria for Basic Level Programs

    In the absence of such evidence, the candidate will be required to complete the undergraduate engineering design courses and their appropriate undergraduate prerequisites, including mathematics and basic science courses consistent with the BSCE program at Villanova.

    MSWREE Degree Criteria

    A candidate is eligible to pursue the MSWREE degree provided he/she can present evidence of proficiency in:
    • Mathematics
    • Basic science
    • Engineering science

    In the absence of such evidence, the candidate will be required to complete the following undergraduate prerequisites:
    • Four semesters of mathematics through differential equations
    • Two semesters of chemistry
    • One semester of Newtonian physics
    • Statics/Dynamics
    • Fluid mechanics

    The undergraduate prerequisites for the MSWREE degree may be completed in either the day or evening undergraduate programs at Villanova or their equivalent taken elsewhere with departmental approval. Engineering technology courses cannot be used to fulfill undergraduate prerequisites. The undergraduate courses will be in addition to the graduate courses required for the MSWREE degree.
