Civil and Environmental Engineering (ENCE)
Program Title and Classification
Civil and Environmental Engineering
Graduate Degree Program
The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering offers graduate courses leading to the Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy degrees. All programs are planned on an individual basis by the student and an adviser taking into consideration the student’s background and special interests. Areas of concentration at both the master’s and doctoral levels include: transportation engineering, environmental engineering, water resources engineering, structural engineering, geotechnical engineering, civil systems, and project management.
Applicants for admission should hold a B.S. degree in civil engineering. However, applicants with undergraduate degrees in other disciplines may be accepted with the stipulation that deficiencies in prerequisite undergraduate coursework be corrected before enrolling in graduate courses. In addition to the requirements set forth by the Graduate School, applicants must have a minimum GPA of 3.0 to apply to the Master’s Program, and a minimum GPA of 3.5 to apply to the Doctoral Program. Applicants with lower GPA’s may be considered and accepted in a provisional basis if other indicators of ability are exceptional (letters of recommendation, GRE scores, prior experience ...). Applicants are also required to submit results from the Graduate Record Examination. There are no entrance examinations required for the program.
- Statement of Purpose
- TOEFL/IELTS/PTE (international graduate students)
- Letters of Recommendation (3)
- Graduate Record Examination (GRE)
For more admissions information or to apply to the program, please visit our Graduate School website: www.gradschool.umd.edu/admissions

Master of Science (M.S. )
|Total Credits||Core Requirements||Specialization Options|
Thesis option: 30 credits
Non-thesis option (scholarly paper): 30 credits
Thesis option: At least 24 credits of coursework are required beyond the B.S. degree, including a minimum of 18 credits at the 600 level or above. In addition, six credits of ENCE 799: Master's Thesis Research are required.
Non-thesis option: At least 30 credits of coursework are required beyond the B.S. degree, including a minimum of 24 credits at the 600 level or above. In addition, students are required to complete a scholarly paper.
2. Civil Systems
4. Project Management
7. Water Resources
The M.S. degree program offers a thesis option and very rarely a non-thesis option. Applicants who do not wish to complete a thesis are encouraged to consider the Professional Master of Engineering (ENPM) degree instead: http://www.gradschool.umd.edu/catalog/programs/enpm.htm
The Department's policies and requirements are the same as those of the Graduate School.
Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.)
1. Doctoral students are required to complete 36 credits beyond the Bachelor's degree, which would include the credits earned in the completion of a Master's degree.
2. A qualifying examination is required in order to advance to candidacy. A doctoral student who passes the qualifying exam is admitted to candidacy will automatically be registered for 6 credits of ENCE 899: Doctoral Dissertation Research. A minimum of 12 credits must be taken in ENCE 899.
3. Specialization options include Environmental, Civil Systems, Geotechnical, Project Management, Structures, Transportation, and Water Resources.
The requirements for the Ph.D. degree are also the same as those of the Graduate School. The student will work closely with an adviser to develop an approved program of study suited to his or her individual needs. Before admission to candidacy, the student must pass a qualifying examination, which is normally taken after the coursework is at least 75 percent completed. There is no language requirement for the Ph.D.
Facilities and Special Resources
Departmental research facilities include laboratories in the following areas: transportation, systems analysis, environmental engineering, hydraulics, remote sensing, structures, and soil mechanics. Graduate students have convenient access to a spectrum of computer facilities, including networked personal computers and workstations, specialized computer-aided design, graphics, and visualization laboratories, campus mainframe computers, and remote supercomputer facilities.
The Washington and Baltimore metropolitan areas are easily accessible for data, field studies, library access, contacts with national organizations, and attendance at national meetings. The location of the University of Maryland offers a unique opportunity to obtain an advanced degree in civil engineering.
Research assistantships may be available from individual faculty members, depending on available resources. Only a limited number of teaching assistantships are available. Part-time work as grading assistants may be available as well.
