Master of Civil Engineering Program Overview The Master of Civil Engineering (MCE) is designed for students with an undergraduate degree in an engineering discipline who wish to pursue a graduate degree. Students who do not have an undergraduate degree in civil engineering should consult the department website for a list of required pre-requisites at http://www.ce.ncsu.edu/graduate/admission.phtml. Admission Requirements Prerequisites for admission to the MCE degree include an undergraduate degree in civil engineering from an accredited institution or its equivalent with an overall GPA of 3.0. The Graduate Record Exam (GRE) is required for admission into the degree program; however, this may be waived upon request from students with engineering or closely related undergraduate degrees that have a strong mathematical curriculum. The TOEFL or IELTS scores (no more than two years old) are required for international applicants unless they have completed one year of study at a university in the United States, Canada or Great Britain. You must apply for admissions to the MCE program online at http://www.ncsu.edu/grad. When completing the online application, please be sure to select the “Distance Track” version of the degree. Degree Requirements • Completion of 30 credit hours of graduate level courses at the 400, 500 or 700 level with an overall grade point average of 3.0. At least 24 hours must be at the 500 level or above and 400 level courses must be outside of civil engineering. • Students are assigned an academic advisor and must work with this advisor to develop an individual Plan of Graduate Work. Some specialty areas have specific course requirements and these requirements must be met by both on campus and distance students. • Approximately two-thirds of all credit hours should be in civil engineering with an area of emphasis. • The remaining credit hours can be civil engineering courses or related courses from other departments. • No thesis or on-campus residency requirement. • All requirements for the degree must be completed within six years of enrolling in the first course approved in the Plan of Graduate Work. Students must comply with the Graduate School regulations for continuous enrollment or must request a leave of absence not to exceed one year. Course Registration To register for an Engineering Online course, complete the registration form on the Engineering Online website at http://engineeringonline.ncsu.edu by clicking on “Registration.” Students cannot register for Engineering Online courses through the University MyPack Portal system. A person does not have to be admitted to a degree program to enroll in an online credit course. Prior to applying to Graduate School, a qualified individual may enroll in Engineering Online courses as a Non-Degree Studies (NDS) student. All course prerequisites must still be satisfied. The NDS classification is designed for individuals who wish to undertake academic work but who are not currently admitted to a degree program. If the student is admitted to the MCE program, a maximum of twelve NDS credit hours may apply toward the 30 credit hour requirement if the student earns the grade of B or higher in each course. Course Offerings A list of distance education courses available for each semester can be found on the Engineering Online website. Full-time employed individuals can only enroll in two online courses per semester. It is highly recommended that new students enroll in one online course during their first semester. The following courses will be available through the Engineering Online program in various semesters. CE 501 Transportation Systems Engineering CE 502 Traffic Operations CE 509 Highway Safety CE 515 Advanced Strength of Materials CE 522 Theory and Design of Pre-stressed Concrete CE 523 Theory and Behavior of Steel Structures CE524 Analysis and Design of Masonry Structures CE 525 Structural Analysis II CE 526 Finite Element Method in Structural Engineering CE 527 Structural Dynamics CE 528 Structural Design in Wood CE 529 FRP Strengthening and Repair of Concrete Structures CE 561 Construction Project Management CE 564 Legal Aspects of Contracting CE 565 Construction Safety Management CE 567 Risk and Financial Management in Construction CE 571 Physical Principles of Environmental Engineering CE 573 Biological Principles of Environmental Engineering CE 574 Chemical Principles of Environmental Engineering CE 576 Engineering Principles of Air Pollution Control CE 577 Engineering Principles of Solid Waste Management CE 579 Principles of Air Quality Engineering CE 584 Hydraulics of Ground Water CE 588 Water Resources Engineering CE 593 Unsaturated Soil Mechanics CE 702 Traffic Flow Theory CE 705 Intelligent Transportation Systems CE 707 Transportation Policy CE 723 Advanced Structural Dynamics CE 724 Probabilistic Methods of Structural Engineering CE 725 Earthquake Structural Engineering CE 726 Advanced Theory of Concrete Structures CE 741 Geomechanics of Stress Deformation CE 742 Deformation and Instability of Soils CE 744 Foundation Engineering CE 747 Geosynthetics in Geotechnical Engineering CE 751 Theory of Concrete Mixtures CE 755 Highway Pavement Design CE 757 Pavement Management Systems CE 759 Inelastic Behavior of Construction Materials CE 761 Design of Temporary Structures for Construction CE 766 Building Construction Systems CE 771 Physical-Chemical Water Treatment Processes CE 772 Environmental Exposure and Risk Analysis CE 774 Environmental Bioprocess Technology Other recommended courses MA 501 Advanced Mathematics for Engineers & Scientists I MA 502 Advanced Mathematics for Engineers & Scientists II Course Logistics Online courses are the same as on campus courses in terms of content, requirements and academic rigor. On campus class lectures are captured, digitized and placed on the Internet for distance students to access at any time and from any location. Students must, however, follow the on-campus class schedule in terms of submitting homework and taking exams. Course assignments, lecture notes, a nd handouts are made available to distance students on the course website. All in-class exams must be proctored.
