After graduating, MS graduates with this degree follow diverse career pathways that include employment in a wide variety of public and private sector jobs, as well as additional education at the doctoral level.
Civil Engineering students at the University at Buffalo SUNY - School of Engineering and Applied Sciences may choose one of the following technical concentrations:
- Bridge Engineering
- Computational Engineering Mechanics
- Geomechanics, Geotechnical, and Geoenironmental Engineering
- Structural and Earthquake Engineering
- Transportation Systems Engineering

- The 30-credit MS program consists of three components (described in detail below): required courses, elective courses, and a culminating thesis, project, or exam. To complete the degree, most students choose the “all-course” option, which consists of six credits of concentration-specific required classes, 24 additional credits of approved elective classes, and a comprehensive exam taken at the end of their final semester.
- Students may also complete (in addition to required classes) a 3-credit MS project and 21 credits of electives OR a 6-credit MS thesis and 18 credits of electives. In all cases, the student’s academic advisor must approve the proposed program of study, including all required and elective courses to be counted towards the degree. For the project and thesis options, a CSEE faculty member must agree to serve as the project/thesis advisor.
