About the Program

The 9 month Engineering program of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), with opportunities for individualized tracks in CEE – prepares our graduates for addressing significant challenges in the domains of Civil and Environmental Engineering.

Within the Environmental Engineering Science track of the MEng degree program, students pursue classes and research in their areas of interest, including hydrology, environmental chemistry, ecology, and environmental fluid mechanics.

Within the Structural Mechanics and Design track of the MEng degree program, students pursue curriculum and research in areas including structural engineering mechanics, computational design and optimization, and collaborative workflows at the interface of engineering and architecture.

For current MIT students, the program is a natural extension of the Institute’s 4 year Bachelor of Science degree for students to gain practical experiences and prepare for emerging fields in today’s job market.
