Programs of Study
The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering offers programs of graduate study and research in two areas: Environmental Engineering and Water Resources and Mechanics, Materials, and Structures. Within the MMS offerings there is a Materials in Civil and Environmental Engineering program that is offered jointly through the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering and the Princeton Institute for Science and Techonology of Materials. The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering offers three degree programs of study: Doctor of Philosophy in Civil and Environmental Engineering, Master of Science in Engineering, and a one-year Master of Engineering. Students must be admitted to one of the three degree programs. The department has approximately 50 graduate students. The student-faculty ratio in the department is kept low to allow productive working relationships between students and their advisors. The department makes every effort to support all admitted students requesting financial aid through research assistantships, teaching assistantships, and fellowships but financial aid is unavailable to students seeking admission into the Master of Engineering program.
