Graduate Studies in Civil and Environmental Engineering

Civil and Environmental Engineering Graduate Programs

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Northwestern University is a premier research and academic department ranked among the top departments in the nation. With approximately 20 faculty members, the department provides graduate students with an exceptional range of opportunities to advance their knowledge and careers in a scholarly community small enough to assure individual attention and effective mentoring.

Our department prepares students to become the next generation of leaders in research, academic, corporate, and public service settings.

We offer Master of Science (MS) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degrees in civil and environmental engineering through Northwestern University’s Graduate School. These degrees are earned through the five academic programs that we offer:

Students work with their advisors to construct study plans suited to their unique background and interests. These include extensive options for courses outside civil and environmental engineering that address a wide variety of social, economic, and physical challenges in constructing and managing private and public infrastructure.
