The Civil and Environmental Engineering master's program educates students across and within the fields of environmental health, environmental and water resources engineering, geosystems engineering, and structural engineering and mechanics.
We provide students with the best of both worlds: a student-centered experience at a top-notch research university. You'll join small classes and immerse yourself in cutting-edge, interdisciplinary research led by innovative faculty.
Through full and part-time options, students concentrate on areas like applied data science, environmental health, environmental and water resources engineering, geosystems engineering, and structural engineering and mechanics.
Master's degrees require a minimum of 30 SHUs and the fulfillment of at least 10 courses at the 100-level or above with grades of S (satisfactory) or at least a B-.
Civil and Environmental engineers use their training to help society anticipate and respond to the emerging challenges of our changing world by focusing on natural and built systems, and by working at the intersection of infrastructure, the environment, and people.
Students graduate with advanced level expertise in a civil and environmental engineering specialty, some technical breadth in a related specialty, and familiarity with engineering tools used by the profession. Those students who wish to pursue doctoral education and research or a career in engineering practice within the private or public sector can opt to complete thesis research work in addition to the course work required for a master's degree.
Participate in networking opportunities through the weekly CEE Seminar and other annual networking events. Learn to address key societal issues related to how and where we live, work, and interact.
Admission into the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering generally requires course credits in science (biology, chemistry, physics), mathematics (through differential equations), and engineering sciences (fluid mechanics, statics).
Students admitted to the Environmental and Water Resources Engineering concentration are expected to have also completed at least one semester of college-level probability and statistics.
Students admitted for the Environmental Health concentration should also possess a suitable background in the biological sciences.
Students lacking one or more of these undergraduate preparations may be admitted on the condition that they complete the necessary coursework during their first year at Tufts. Credits resulting from the successful completion (i.e., a grade of B or better) of conditional coursework are required to obtain a degree but may not be used to satisfy graduate course requirements within the degree program.
