View Doctorate Programs in Civil Engineering in USA

One must accomplish two things when earning a PhD. First one must understand a particular subject thoroughly. Secondly, one must extensively in knowledge about that subject.

The field of civil engineering is so named because it deals with designing and building structures that are used by everyday civilians, such as roads and bridges. Civil engineering has many specializations, ranging from the environment to transportation.

 

The United States of America is a large country in North America, often referred to as the "USA", the "US", the "United States", "America", or simply "the States". American colleges are funded by "tuition" charged to the student, which is often quite expensive, very commonly reaching into the tens of thousands of dollars per year.

Admission Requirements

An MS degree from a program in Civil and Environmental Engineering or other engineering discipline is required for admission. Applicants with both BS and MS degrees in disciplines other than engineering may be required to demonstrate proficiency through additional undergraduate coursework as determined by the departmental Graduate Committee. This may comprise an additional semester of study for which graduate credit cannot be granted.

No minimum grade point average is required for admission. However, a superior record of academic achievement is expected of all applicants.

The following are minimum requirements: 90 credit hours beyond the B.S. 39 credit hours of coursework 15 credit hours in the major field Nine credit hours in the minor field Six credit hours from a department other than the one in which the student is housed (Courses double-listed in CE and another department do not count in these six credit hours.) A maximum of 30 credit hours transfer credit (grade of B or better). All work must be completed within seven years after the candidacy procedure is completed. All students must pass a group of core courses in one of the following specialty areas: Environmental, Geotechnical, Structural, Transportation, and Water Resources Engineering. ... [-]

The objective of the graduate program in civil engineering is to prepare students for continued professional and scholarly development consistent with their technical interests. Students, with the assistance of a faculty advisor in their area of interest, plan their programs of study in one of the technical areas in civil engineering.

Learning Outcomes Fundamental Knowledge: Graduates will command profound basic and applied knowledge in their specialty area within their Civil Engineering Program (CEP) interest area. Independent Abilities: Graduates will have the ability to conduct a major independent and original research study that includes gathering of information, gaining an understanding of the process of academic or commercial exploitation of research results, demonstrating an understanding of contemporary research issues, effective project management, synthesis and evaluation, and appropriate dissemination of research findings. Critical Thinking: Graduates will have a profound ability to critique and synthesize literature, review results and to apply knowledge gained from literature to develop new ideas, to design and evaluate scientific investigations, and to assess, interpret and understand data related to their specialty area within their CEP interest area. Advanced Knowledge: Graduates will demonstrate profound mastery of the subject matter at a deeper theoretical and applied level well beyond fundamental knowledge gained in the undergraduate course sequence and the higher-level knowledge gained in the master’s level course sequence. Effective Communication: Graduates will have the ability to construct coherent arguments and articulate ideas clearly to an audience, through a variety of techniques, constructively defend research outcomes, justify their research to the profession...

Program Overview

Civil and Environmental Engineering graduate students have extraordinary opportunities to learn about the state-of-the-art in their studies. Environmental engineering students use one of the world’s largest wastewater treatment plants as a real-world laboratory to improve the water quality of the Potomac River and the Chesapeake Bay watershed. Structural engineering students study earthquake engineering, extreme event design of structures and bridge design on a state-of-the-art, six-degrees-of-freedom earthquake simulator. And transportation-engineering students learn from faculty and experts at GW’s National Crash Analysis Center and the Federal Outdoor Impact Laboratory.... [-]
