The Civil Engineering MSc program offered at Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University provides students with education in advanced civil engineering topics as well as research experience.



  • The curriculum of the Civil Engineering MSc program offered at Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University includes a total of 30 semester hours, consisting of coursework and thesis research. To enroll in a course, students must satisfy the course prerequisites. Students entering the major without a civil or environmental engineering degree also must satisfy a set of articulation courses. Students are expected to enroll in Graduate Seminar (CGN 5935) each semester in which they have full-time status.
  • The specialty (depth) area courses provide students an advanced education beyond the bachelor’s degree in a specific civil engineering sub-discipline. The majority of the specialty area courses should be taken from the CEE department.
  • The supplementary electives are intended to develop the student’s complementary multidisciplinary skills and knowledge. Supplementary electives may include courses from other civil and environmental engineering areas outside of the chosen specialty, other engineering disciplines, the sciences, computer/computational science, urban and regional planning, and geography.
  • Mathematics and quantitative skills are critical in civil engineering work. Therefore a student is required to take at least one course (a minimum of three (3) credit hours) in mathematics, statistics, or computational science.
