Civil Engineering - Admission Requirements

The Civil Engineering M.S. program at Tennessee Tech provides the strong academic foundation needed to prepare students to become educated members of society who can make significant contributions to the civil engineering profession. Current areas of research among TTU's graduate faculty are environmental engineering, water resources engineering, structural engineering and mechanics, and transportation engineering and materials.

The program is research oriented and requires a thesis. Graduate faculty work with students in advanced and in-depth studies in these topics; provide guidance in fundamental and applied research; help develop powers of analysis, synthesis and critical thinking; and prepare students to follow academic and research careers through doctoral-level studies.

The program consists of 24 semester hours of course work and a minimum of six thesis hours.

Tennessee Tech houses three state-supported Centers of Excellence: the Electric Power Center, the Manufacturing Research Center, and the Center for the Management, Utilization and Protection of Water Resources. The three centers offer excellent research opportunities, the use of state-of-the-art equipment and funding for graduate students in engineering.
