Learning Outcomes

Thesis Track
  1. Demonstrate knowledge in the chosen area of their expertise (construction, geotechnical, structural, transportation, and water resources/environmental).
  2. Acquire and apply appropriate research methodology to solve contemporary engineering problems related to the area of their expertise.
  3. Demonstrate an ability to generate, collect, compile, and interpret research data.
  4. Demonstrate technical communication skills.
Non-Thesis Track
  1. Demonstrate knowledge in the chosen area of their expertise (construction, geotechnical, structural, transportation, and water resources/environmental).
  2. Demonstrate technical communication skills.

Career Possibilities

MSE degree allows the students to specialize in an area of interest such as construction, geotechnical, structural, transportation or water resource/environmental engineering. A Master’s degree leads to better opportunities for securing technical or management positions at public institutions, and engineering consulting, design, manufacturing, or construction firms.
