Course Schedule

To satisfy the requirements for the M.S. in Civil and Environmental Engineering with a specific concentration or emphasis, the student is required to complete one of the following options.

Infrastructure and Construction Management

Requires at least:

Environmental Science, Engineering and Management

Requires at least:

Engineering Mechanics

Requires at least:

All students are required to complete a six-credit thesis and CIE798 Research Methods. The remaining course may be taken from any graduate program of the School of Engineering, or any approved graduate course offered by LAU (business, international affairs, biology, toxicology, chemistry, and computer science).

It is recommended that the remaining course be in the thesis area and in consultation with the academic advisor.

Course offerings in a specific concentration area are contingent on adequate enrollment in that area.
