CSE Option in Civil and Environmental Engineering

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) offers a CSE Option in the M.S. degree program. Students electing the CSE Option are expected to satisfy all regular requirements for graduate study in CEE. A student will normally be able to satisfy the requirements for the CSE Option by taking elective courses within the CEE graduate programs.

M.S. Program

For the M.S. in CEE with the CSE Option, the following additional requirements must be satisfied: four hours of course work must be from CSE core courses, and four additional hours of course work must be from an approved list of computational application courses (see below). The M.S. thesis, if any, must have a significant computational component.
