Master of Science in Civil Engineering
- Enhance the knowledge of graduates in the advanced concepts in Civil Engineering fields such as structures, mechanics, finite element methods, geotechnics, and transportation.
- Increase the ability of graduates to synthesize and apply these advanced concepts to develop realistic designs in fields related to civil engineering and to solve identified problems, and design strategies for implementing them safely, ethically, and effectively.
- Enhance the ability of graduates to communicate these concepts effectively both in oral and written formats.
The M.S. program in Civil Engineering is designed to provide advanced study, both theoretically and experimentally, in structures, mechanics, finite element methods, water resources, and geotechnics. This program prepares the student for advanced placement in the civil engineering field in industry, research, or development areas. Additionally, this program provides a suitable base for entrance into a Ph.D. program in a field related to Civil Engineering. The program is offered both at the Pocatello and the Idaho Falls campuses, primarily through the use of telecommunications/distance learning, which includes partial in-class instruction.
