About this course

Montana State University's Department of Civil Engineering anticipates that engineering and construction practice will continue to evolve quickly with several very fundamental precepts for success. Among these is the premise that the engineers and constructors will continue to rely on fundamental engineering science coupled with contemporary computational tools to meet the engineering and construction challenges of the future.  We therefore choose to focus our curriculum on fundamental engineering basics and the application of modern engineering tools. Our civil and environmental engineering programs will be acknowledged for their strong emphasis and rigor in engineering science, design, and applications. Our construction programs will be acknowledged for their emphasis on engineering and management skills and the application of those skills to the construction industry. The emphasis of these programs will continue to be preparation of students for professional practice in the engineering and construction industries.

Incorporating our vision into the traditional mission of a land grant institution leads to a strong emphasis on undergraduate education. However, in making this a substantial portion of our mission, we also look beyond the undergraduate classroom. To ensure a quality faculty, and up-to-date curricula, we have a vibrant broad-based graduate program at the master's level and a smaller subset of specialty areas at the doctorate level. A strong master's program also positions the department favorably for the possibility of future changes in professional degree requirements and is consistent with our vision for education at MSU. The graduate program is essential to stimulate research activity and thus provide opportunities for students interested in research experiences across all levels of the curriculum, and to offer opportunity for formal study beyond the baccalaureate degree.

Eligibility Criteria

  • A completed bachelor’s degree in civil engineering (anticipated conferred degree is acceptable, however final transcripts will be required). A cumulative GPA of 3.00 or higher on a 4.00 scale is required.
  • A degree in civil engineering is desired, however if a background in another discipline, please see below for information regarding necessary remedial courses or Non-degree entrance option.)
  • Official transcripts for all conferred degrees.
  • Three letters of recommendation.
  • Official GRE scores.  While an required component of the application, this program does not publish a require score. Rather, the GRE is used as a partnering review tool along with undergraduate grades in supporting coursework. Together, both are used  to suggest successful performance in post-graduate course work, research and resulting breadth of knowledge in the civil engineering field.   Montana State University Institution code is 4488. Please review GRE testing dates to insure timely submission of scores for your intent semester of application.
  • A goals statement.
