Civil and Environmental Engineering, Master of Science Degree

Graduate Program Progression

Advisory Committee

Your advisory committee plays a key role in helping you select your master's degree coursework and meet graduation requirements. Students are typically assigned a temporary advisor when they are admitted to the master's degree program, but we encourage you to select a permanent advisor by the end of your first semester.

You will work with your permanent advisor to form an examining committee that will help you develop your program of study, which is the specific list of courses and credits taken to meet degree requirements. Your committee will also supervise your thesis research or administer your comprehensive examination.

Your committee must consist of at least three faculty members, two of whom must be from the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department and one from an outside department.
