The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Delaware offers three degree programs following ABET accreditation standards:
- Civil Engineering
- Environmental Engineering
- Construction Engineering and Management
Students can choose a focus from multiple concentrations and take advantage of a wealth of opportunities, including study abroad, undergraduate research, the honors program, internships and co-op experiences, and a 4+1 program that allows students to earn a bachelor’s and master’s degree at the same time.
The department offers the following graduate degree and certificate programs:
- Master’s degrees: Master of Civil Engineering (MCE); Master of Applied Science (MAS); Master of Science in Ocean Engineering (M.S.)
- Dual Degree: Master of Civil Engineering/Master of Business Administration (MCE/MBA)
- Ph.D. Degrees: Ph.D. in Civil Engineering; Ph.D. in Ocean Engineering
- Certificate: Graduate Certificate in Railroad Engineering
Students pursuing graduate degrees in Civil Engineering can choose from the following concentration areas: Coastal Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering, Structural Engineering, Transportation Engineering & Civil Infrastructure Systems, and Water Resources Engineering.
Research in civil and environmental engineering is often an interdisciplinary endeavor. Our faculty specialize in six main areas (listed below) but frequently cross group and departmental boundaries to collaborate with experts in other areas, ranging from materials science to biochemistry to oceanography.
- Coastal & Ocean
- Environmental & Water
- Transportation Engineering & Civil Infrastructure Systems
- Water Resources
