Graduate Programs

Become a Leader in a Wide Range of Diverse Fields

Earning a graduate degree through the Civil & Environmental Engineering department at WPI prepares you for leadership roles in a range of fields, such as construction project management, environmental engineering, highway infrastructure, and structural engineering, often crossing boundaries between traditional areas of study in order to address critical civil engineering problems.

The CEE graduate program offers a myriad of degrees and ways for busy working professionals to earn them. Options include an MS and PhD in Civil Engineering; an MS in Environmental Engineering and Construction Project Management; an ME, a practice-oriented degree, with Environmental Engineering and Master Builder concentrations; and graduate and advanced graduate certificates.

All classes are held at night, and many are available via streaming video through WPI’s Advanced Distance Learning Network. Degrees may be pursued on a part- or full-time basis.
