In exceptional circumstances, highly qualified students with bachelor's degree in environmental engineering or civil engineering may be accepted directly into the doctoral program. The GRE general section is required of all applicants with a minimum in the quantitative section. Degree Requirements The department on an individual basis approves specific degree requirements and dissertation topics.
Where do I send my GRE scores? Yes, either one is fine Must I complete all deficiency courses before I apply? No, you can take them along with master's courses. How long does it take to process my application?
Typically about a week after it is complete including GRE, transcripts, etc. Can I have a deficiency course waived?
If you have had the course content previously, e-mail me sattler uta. Can you waive the GESP? Only if your undergraduate degree was from a university where courses were conducted in English.
How do I defer my admission until the next semester? How do I change to an area of civil engineering different from the one I applied for e. I want to change from environmental to water resources?
Send an e-mail to sattler uta. What do I include in my statement of purpose? Applicants only Why you want to pursue a Ph. Can the statement of purpose be longer than words? Applicants only Yes Where do I send my statement of purpose? Applicants only sattler uta.
Can the references be snail-mailed? Objective and Description The objective of the graduate program in civil engineering is to prepare students for continued professional and scholarly development consistent with their technical interests.
Students, with the assistance of a faculty advisor in their area of interest, plan their programs of study in one of the technical areas in civil engineering.
Research Areas Typical program and research areas are: Environmental water and air quality control, and solid and hazardous materials control ; Construction Engineering and Management Geotechnical soil mechanics and foundations ; Infrastructure Systems; Transportation traffic planning, highways, airports and transit ; Water Resources hydrology and hydraulics ; Admissions Requirements Requirements and Courses The Ph.
Students are admitted to work with a particular faculty member and should contact faculty members in their area of interest prior to applying. Normally, a minimum of one year of advanced coursework beyond the master's degree is required.
See the University Catalog for course information. A minimum of two other CE faculty members. A minimum of one member outside of CE, in the student's minor area. A minimum of 4 members.Environmental Engineering, Sustainability, and Science - PhD Program Mechanics, Materials and Computing - PhD Program Joint and Interdisciplinary PhD Programs.
Civil Engineering students are only eligible to enter part-time status in their fourth and final semester, and must meet additional eligibility requirements. International students must also seek approval through the Office of International Services.
This program is intended for students interested in construction management and engineering or a closely related field. It includes required core courses primarily from the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, complemented by electives in civil and environmental engineering and other departments such as mechanical and industrial engineering and business administration.
Civil engineering is a professional engineering discipline that deals with the design, construction, and maintenance of the natural and built environment.
It is a very broad field made up of several sub-disciplines such as environmental engineering, construction engineering, geotechnical engineering, hydrotechnical engineering, materials engineering, structural engineering, and transportation.
However, the Lyles School of Civil Engineering expects that satisfactory progress toward the degree shall result in the completion of all requirements within six calendar years from the time a student is first admitted in a PhD program.
