Comments about Master of Science in Civil Engineering - At the institution - Terre Haute - Indiana

  • Course description
    This program has been designed to build upon a students undergraduate background and provide additional depth and breadth in the challenging and versatile profession of Civil Engineering.

    Options of study are available in Structural/Geotechnical Engineering.  In addition to courses in engineering, technical electives may be chosen from a variety offered in mathematics, physics, and chemistry.  Students interested in the areas of Environmental Engineering and Water Resources should refer to the Master of Science in Environmental Engineering Program..

    Topics for thesis research could come from areas such as structural mechanics, including finite element analysis, or geotechnical mechanics, including soil-structure interaction, and earthquake engineering.  Study of engineering failures in structures and/or geotechnical mechanics is also encouraged.  Part-time students from industry are encouraged to select, with their advisory committee chairperson, job-related topics.
