Graduate Program

Civil and Environmental Engineers are pushing the envelopes of applied science to build a more sustainable future for the world. Advanced knowledge and degrees are essential for professional careers that require imagination, innovation, complex design solutions and management knowledge. As engineers develop in their careers they will be challenged to imagine new ways to support the needs of business, industry, public agencies, and their companies. Graduate study at the Masters of Science, PhD level or as a non-matriculating professional improves your depth of knowledge and provides exposure to the most recent technological advances.

At the University of Utah, the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CvEEN) provides comprehensive degree programs in all areas of civil engineering and specialized programs in nuclear and environmental engineering. Graduate programs in civil engineering include an emphasis in structural engineering, transportation engineering, water resource engineering, engineering management, and geotechnical engineering. Graduate students may choose to integrate several of these areas in both coursework and research to develop the necessary expertise their careers demand.
