Civil Engineering at Kansas State University

Graduate Program

The Department of Civil Engineering at Kansas State University offers comprehensive programs leading to the degree of masters of science within the department and doctor of philosophy within the College of Engineering. Established programs of study are available in structural analysis and design, geotechnical engineering, water resources engineering, environmental engineering, and transportation engineering and materials. An active research program is conducted in each of these areas, and it is the goal of the department to maintain a close association between graduate study, research, teaching, and engineering practice.

Program Requirements

The general requirements for admission to the civil engineering graduate program include the receipt of a bachelor of science degree from an accredited civil engineering department and evidence that the applicant has the ability to do satisfactory graduate work. However, students not possessing a degree in civil engineering may be admitted if their undergraduate work is closely related to a specific discipline within the civil engineering program and they complete a core program of undergraduate civil engineering course work.

Students admitted for work toward a master of science degree can select a program of study requiring the completion of a master's thesis or a master's report within their area of interest. Students admitted for work toward a doctor of philosophy degree are required to develop an original research program, and complete a doctoral dissertation under the guidance of faculty members from the College of Engineering.
