Full Program Description

Award of the Doctor of Philosophy degree is based on exceptional performance in course work as well as evidence of ability to formulate and execute original research. The PhD program has two components: (1) An academic program of graduate-level courses that provides depth in a specific area of civil engineering (the major field) as well as other course work that provides additional exposure at an advanced level to one or more disciplines; and (2) the dissertation, an extended independent research effort on a relevant technical problem resulting in an original contribution to the field.

Civil engineering is a broad field and Northeastern offers you the opportunity to sample many of its components. You can earn a master’s in civil engineering with a focus on construction management, environmental engineering, geotechnical/geoenvironmental engineering, structural engineering, and transportation engineering. You can complete the degree requirements on a full- or part-time basis.

At the master’s level, there are degree programs in

*Note: The graduate catalog mistakenly lists “CIVE 7251 Environmental Biological Processes” as a restricted elective for Structural Engineering. The correct course is “CIVE 7351 Behavior of Steel Structures”.
