M.S. in Civil and Environmental Engineering
Field of Study: Applied Data Science
- Infrastructure and natural hazards >
- Environmental health and technology >
- Water diplomacy >
The next generation of civil and environmental engineering and health professionals will face many grand challenges that occur at the intersection of natural resources and human systems, with competing and often conflicting demands for air, water, food, energy, infrastructure, and health. To address these challenges, engineering and health professionals will need not only a deep knowledge base but also the ability to analyze data to find innovative and efficient ways to address societal problems within a real-world context.
To meet these needs, our one-year M.S. with a specialty in the field of applied data science will prepare students to understand, manage, and analyze data and to use data to make discoveries that can inform policies and make for more efficient decisions, all within the context of civil engineering, environmental engineering, and environmental health applications. Students can choose between one of three domains: infrastructure and natural hazards, environmental health and technology, and water diplomacy, or can design their own area of focus.
This problem-focused field of study:
A full-time student can complete this option (MS-non-thesis) in one year. Ten credits are required: 2 core classes (2 credits), 4 modular tool-based training elements (2 credits), 4 classes in a research domain (4 credits), a seminar (1 credit), and a capstone project (1 credit).
Note that full-time students may choose to complete a thesis as part of their degree program, in which case the program may take 1.5 to 2 years to complete, and thesis research (2 course credits) may replace the equivalent number of course credits in domain-specific courses.
