Civil Engineering M.Eng.

Masters of Engineering

Admission Requirements

An applicant must have completed a baccalaureate science degree in engineering, mathematics, or science at an accredited college or university. If coursework or laboratory experience is deficient, an admitted student will be required to fulfill, without graduate credit, all undergraduate prerequisites for graduate courses. In some cases, the student's adviser may require additional undergraduate courses in order to achieve a well-integrated program of study. Applicants must submit current scores (within five years) from the general test of the GRE, unless waived by the graduate coordinator (for current UNH undergraduate civil engineering (CIE) or environmental engineering (ENE) majors only).


Degree Requirements

All Masters of Engineering degree students must complete a minimum of 30 total credits.  UNH bachelor’s degree students admitted to the Accelerated Master’s program may register for a maximum of 8 credits of graduate-level courses prior to completing their bachelor's degree. Such courses may upon recommendation of the department and approval of the Graduate School count toward both a bachelor's and master's degree. M.Eng. students are required to complete one of the following options as a concluding experience:

  • Option A Masters Project: Students must complete a 3 credit master’s project (CiE 888) on a civil engineering topic.
  • Option B Oral Exam: Students must complete an oral exam. The oral exam does not count towards the number of required credits.
  • Option C Written Exam: Students must complete a written exam. The written exam does not count towards the number of required credits.

The M.Eng. option is designed to facilitate completion of B.S./M.Eng. civil engineering degrees within five years. M.Eng degree students are not eligible for an assistantship. For graduation, a grade of B- or better in each course, an overall B average (3.00 GPA), and successful completion of one of the above concluding experiences must be achieved.
