Accreditation

For information regarding accreditation at UNLV, please head over to Academic Program Accreditations.

Learning Outcomes

The students learning outcomes are:

  • An ability to develop, evaluate, and assess new techniques, skills, and tools to solve complex engineering and construction related problems.
  • An ability to acquire engineering and construction knowledge in the area of their expertise (construction, geotechnical, structural, transportation, and water resources/environmental).
  • An ability to critically read and analyze literature, develop research hypothesis, and create methodology to solve research problems related to the area of their expertise.
  • An ability to collect and analyze research data interpret and synthesize the findings through peer reviewed conference proceedings and journal papers.
  • Effectively communicate technical and research information.

Career Possibilities

A MSE in Civil & Environmental Engineering degree is usually not necessary for employment as a licensed professional civil engineer, but can assist with preparation for licensure in specialized areas such as construction, geotechnical, structural, transportation or water resources/environmental engineering. A Master’s degree is usually necessary for hire into advanced technical or management positions at public utilities, government, and engineering consulting, design, manufacturing or construction firms.
