Program Details

The online Master of Science in Civil Engineering with an emphasis in Public Works program prepares students to confront the diversity of public issues facing modern American cities.  Students will learn to handle the continual growth that requires innovative responses to air pollution, disposal of waste products, flood control, and suburban traffic growth.  The curriculum offers a technical focus that tailors courses to an area of specialized technical interest or a general focus that features a broad program.  Courses in both focus areas provide the basic tools needed by public works engineers, including courses in transportation engineering, construction engineering, and environmental engineering.
