From the pyramids of Egypt to the space station Freedom, civil engineers have always faced the challenge of the future — advancing civilization and improving the quality of life.The Department is offering a Master of Science in Civil Engineering at Texas Tech University.


The technological revolution, population growth and environmental concerns all create a challenge to civil engineers. The next few decades will be the most creative, demanding and rewarding times.

Civil engineering is about development and improvement. It involves planning, design, construction and operation of facilities essential to modern life. Civil engineers solve problems to meet the challenges of pollution, traffic congestion, water supplies, energy needs, waste management, urban redevelopment and community planning. Future civil engineers must have the ability to interact with and compete in a global economy. 

The Department of Civil, Environmental, and Construction Engineering offers two master's degrees: 

  • Master of Science in Civil Engineering at Texas Tech University
