Because of the broad nature of civil engineering, Missouri University of Science and Technology offers the following areas of study:
- Environmental engineering courses can be tailored to fit the interest of the student, with strong courses in groundwater, soil remediation, air pollution control, and wastewater treatment.
- Structural engineering general studies include reinforced concrete, cold-formed steel, fiber reinforced polymer composites, high performance concrete, seismic behavior of structures, damage detection.
- Geotechnical engineering - study in this area includes courses in soil properties and their measurements, foundations, embankments, earth dams, soil mechanics, numerical modeling, soil dynamics and earthquake engineering.
- Water resources engineering - courses are available in various specialty areas, including advanced hydraulics and hydrology, watershed and urban hydrology, physical and mathematical modeling, sediment transport, and river mechanics.
- Construction engineering - studies focus on managing the design and construction process, including estimating, scheduling, contracts, productivity, and project delivery systems.
Delivery of this program is 100% online: no campus visits are required. Courses are semester-based. Students typically take one or two classes each semester and finish in two to three years.
