Civil and Environmental Engineering, Master of Science (M.S.)

Students are required to complete 30 credits within one of the seven specializations. The M.S. degree program offers a thesis option and very rarely a non-thesis option. Applicants who do not wish to complete a thesis are encouraged to consider the Professional Master of Engineering (ENPM) degree instead: http://www.gradschool.umd.edu/catalog/programs/enpm.htm
