The master’s program in Civil Engineering from Wentworth Institute of Technology combines professional experience with graduate level civil engineering principles. The program offers flexible timelines (part-time and full-time options) and can be completed within one year.


The program from Wentworth Institute of Technology includes two-degree options. The options include Master of Engineering in Civil Engineering (M.Eng. CE), and a Master of Science in Civil Engineering (M.S. CE) with a thesis. Each program requires thirty-one (31) credits to graduate. 

Degrees explained

Master of Engineering in Civil Engineering (M.Eng. CIVE) is an existing course-based degree program and is intended to prepare students for engineering practice. With a curriculum that balances theory with practical application, the M.Eng. CIVE reinforces and builds upon students' knowledge in the planning, designing, constructing, and analyzing of infrastructure. 

Diverse course offerings allow students to customize their own program of study, focusing on an area of civil engineering that most interests them. Tailored programs provide a blend of engineering knowledge and professional development skills to advance career potential. The program requires a total of thirty-one (31) credits and aside from a 1-credit seminar course, there are no required courses in the curriculum nor prerequisite graduate courses.

Master of Science in Civil Engineering (M.S. CIVE) is regarded as a thesis and research-based degree program. Students that obtain the M.S. degree are well prepared for positions in innovative aspects of professional engineering or for continuing their education in a Ph.D. program. 

Students focus their studies and their coursework by obtaining a concentration in geotechnical engineering, structural engineering, or construction engineering. A curriculum will be mapped out with the graduate advisor and subdiscipline advisor. M.S. students take a minimum of 31 (31) credits that consist of twenty-four (24) credits of courses, six (6) credits of research thesis and one (1) credit of graduate seminar.
