Graduate Study In Civil Engineering

The graduate programs offered by the Department of Civil Engineering at Ohio University lead to the M.S. degree and the Ph.D. degree in Civil Engineering. Areas of specialization for the M.S. degree include: Construction Engineering and Management, Environmental, Geotechnical, Geoenvironmental, Mechanics, Structures, Transportation, and Water Resources.

For the M.S. program, the student prepares a complete course-of-study schedule and a written research proposal before the end of the second quarter of graduate study. This is done in collaboration with the student's advisor and approval by the student's M.S. committee and the department graduate chair. A student must complete a minimum of 45 quarter-credit hours of approved graduate work for the M.S. degree. The student may select either the thesis option or the non-thesis, special investigation/project.

Ph.D. areas of specialization are Environmental, Geotechnical, Structures, and Transportation. Scholarly activity revolves around the Ohio Research Institute for Transportation and the Environment.
