The Department of Civil Engineering and Engineering Mechanics offers a graduate program leading to the degree of master of science (M.S.) in either civil engineering or engineering mechanics. The master of science degree is awarded upon the satisfactory completion of a minimum of 30 points of credit of approved graduate study extending over at least one academic year. The program is flexible and may involve concentrations in structures, construction engineering, reliability and random processes, soil mechanics, fluid mechanics, hydrogeology, continuum mechanics, finite element methods, computational mechanics, experimental mechanics, acoustics, vibrations and dynamics, earthquake engineering, or any combination thereof, such as fluid-structure interaction.
A flight structures program is designed to meet the needs of industry in the fields of high-speed and space flight. The emphasis is on mechanics, mathematics, fluid dynamics, flight structures, noise transmission, and control. The program is a part of the Guggenheim Institute of Flight Structures in the department. Specific information regarding degree requirements is available in the department office.
