Why a Master of Science in Civil Engineering (MSCE)? The American Society of Civil Engineers currently supports requiring a Masters degree or equivalent as a prerequisite for the award of a Professional Engineering license. Many states also require a minimum of a Masters degree to teach at the college level. On average, Americans holding a MS degree earn 35% to 50% more than those with only a B.S. degree. The MSCE also reduces the experience requirement for PE licensing by 1 year from 4 years to 3 years in Georgia. Finally, the MSCE can help prepare you for the Professional Engineering Exam.

A graduate degree in civil engineering may help to propel your career to management-level, meet professional licensure requirements, prepare for the Professional Engineering exam and expand opportunities to teach at the college level. The Master of Science in Civil Engineering (MSCE) offers flexibility for working professionals with courses available online. Students have an opportunity to earn the advanced degree by either thesis or coursework-only options in one of five concentration areas:

  • Structural Engineering
  • Geotechnical Engineering
  • Transportation and Pavement Engineering
  • Environmental Engineering
  • Water Resources Engineering

This collection was started with the graduates of the Fall 2015 semester, after the consolidation between Kennesaw State University and Southern Polytechnic State University was final (July 2015).
