The pavement engineering and science program in the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering at the University of Nevada, Reno has a highly active research program offering graduate degrees at the M.S. and Ph.D. levels. The program is ranked among the top five programs in the world.
Graduate degrees at the M.S. and Ph.D. levels are offered for selectively admitted students based on their advanced courses and research work in the area of pavement engineering and science. A total of 15-20 M.S. and Ph.D. research-funded graduate students are working towards their respective degrees during any given semester. WRSC graduate students take advanced courses and work on multiple research projects under the direct and continuous supervision of the WRSC faculty, who offer them significant expertise in pavements/materials engineering.
