The Civil Engineering program of Loyola Marymount University aims to position working professionals and graduates with science and engineering backgrounds interested in earning an advanced degree to gain a deeper understanding of principles required to solve 21st century environmental problems and sustainably manage our water and infrastructure resources for future generations.


In the career-advancing Civil Engineering program of Loyola Marymount University, students are primed to specialize in:

  • Environmental Engineering, with a focus on the most advanced, proven, and sustainable approaches to protect and improve water quality in urban and natural settings through effective management of pollution sources
  • Water Resources Engineering, centered on the sustainable management, theory, and modeling of hydrological processes in natural systems and water conveyance, storage, and flood protection in urban systems
Consider the benefits of the master's in civil engineering program:
  • Strong Industry Ties: Our modern and professionally relevant courses are taught by faculty distinguished in industry and academia.
  • Science to Engineering Pathway: Students with non-engineering undergraduate degrees can earn a degree in civil engineering by passing the Fundamentals of Engineering Examination and completing the required coursework.
  • Evening Program: Courses are offered in the evening to accommodate both full‐time students and working professionals.

Students also have the option to pursue career-boosting, three-course certificates in several different areas or a Master's degree in Environmental Science focused on sustainable management and environmental protection from local to global scales.
