About this Degree

The M.S. in Engineering with Civil Engineering Emphasis degree at the University of Georgia provides specialized expertise in civil engineering by providing a rigorous curriculum and innovative research in two distinctive areas: Structural and Geotechnical Engineering and Environment and Water.  Specifically, the program offers students the opportunity to conduct state-of-the-art research in asphalt and concrete pavements, pavement evaluation and preservation, bridge engineering, non-destructive testing and evaluation, structural and materials modeling, transportation geotechnics and geomechanics, hydrology and hydraulics, urban water, environmental processes, sustainable coastal and river engineering, environmental fluid mechanics, water resources planning and management, and interdependence of infrastructure systems. 

The STRuctural ENGineering Testing Hub (STRENGTH) Laboratory and the GMAT Laboratory are two key research facilities where students and faculty work together to advance these areas. Students may tailor a plan of coursework to their interests by drawing from extensive course offerings spanning several engineering disciplines as well as other schools and colleges at UGA.
