MENG-CE Degree Requirements

The MENG degree is project-oriented and not thesis-based. It requires a minimum of 33 credit hours of graduate coursework.

Required for Degree: 33 credits coursework only

  • A minimum of 15 credit hours of practice-oriented civil engineering classes composed from list of courses found below.
  • 12 additional credit hours that support the student’s area of interest. These courses are listed as required and elective courses, taken from the lists below.
  • At least 6 additional credit hours that advance the student’s management skillset. Can be composed of courses provided by the Anderson Business School. Consult with your advisor to insure that a class meets these requirements.

Students select courses from the following focus areas and may choose a single focus area or combine focus areas:

  • Construction Engineering
  • Environmental Engineering
  • Geotechnical Engineering
  • Water Resources-Hydraulics Engineering
