The field of Civil and Environmental Engineering represent challenging and rewarding
professions that serve the needs of the public at all levels from locally to internationally.
Our graduates practice in local, state and government agencies; small, medium and
large consulting firms both domestic and internationally to launch careers in fields
such as law, medicine and venture capitalism.
Each doctoral student works out an individual degree plan with their advisor tailored
to their needs. The degree requires the completion of at least 60 credit hours beyond
the master's degree.
At least 75% of coursework must include 5000 and 6000 level courses
A minimum of 15 hours at the 6000 level with a grade of SR for the doctoral dissertation
must be complete. The maximum number of dissertation hours (6000 with a grade of
SR) permissible must not exceed three-fourths of the total credit hours
Credit for all courses on the graduate plan of study must have been awarded within
10 years of completion of all degree requirements
A minimum of 30 in-residence credit hours are required
Dr. Tyler Ley, professor of civil and environmental engineering, received
the Medal for Excellence in Teaching at a Research University. His 20 years of experience
