Graduate Students

Welcome to the Department of Civil Engineering! These web pages provide information to help you successfully fulfill the requirements of your chosen graduate degree.

Students must fulfill all requirements of the university as well as the specific requirements of your degree program and emphasis area.

Graduate students have procedures that must be completed and deadlines that must be followed. An outline of these, one for master’s students, and one for PhD students, is included in this section, to help guide you in an orderly and timely manner.

Towards the end of your degree program, you must complete a Departmental Intent to Graduate form, submitted to the Coordinator of Program Advisement, that allows the department to place you on the university’s official graduation list. The School of Engineering holds its own Convocation Ceremony which is a graduation ceremony only for engineering students.

Remember that it is your responsibility to be informed of and satisfy all requirements by keeping in close communication with the Coordinator of Program Advisement and the Director of CE Graduate Programs and by reviewing the information on the OGS website, in the UNM catalog, and in the department’s Graduate Student Handbook.

You can find details on the above topics and more in this section.
