Graduate Programs

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Rowan University offers three graduate programs to provide students with advanced knowledge and skills necessary for a professional career or an academic position. Rowan CEE offers a MS in Civil Engineering, a MS in Engineering Management, and a Ph.D. in Engineering with specialization in Civil Engineering. We ensure that graduate students master quantitative and interpretive skills in a specialized, chosen field for successful professional practice. The Ph.D. is conferred to outstanding students who can demonstrate the ability to conduct independent research and make substantial contributions to the advancement of their chosen field. Ph.D. students are required to make original contributions in Civil and Environmental Engineering.

Dr. Yusuf Mehta serves as the graduate program coordinator for CEE. He is also the director for CREATEs
