The BSCE-MCEE program allows students to obtain a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering and a Professional Master’s in Civil and Environmental Engineering with one additional year of full-time study.
The non-thesis professional master’s degree is offered in two specialization areas:
Benefits of a Master’s Degree
Increased employment opportunities and earning potential. On average up to 25% higher salary for civil engineers.
A master’s degree is becoming expected. Employers in several civil engineering specialization areas expect their engineers to hold a master’s degree.
The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) strongly recommends that all civil engineers obtain a master’s degree for the practice of civil engineering at a professional level and for promotion to senior-level positions.
Advantages for Undergraduates
