B.S./M.S. Five Year Program

The Department of Civil, Environmental, and Sustainable Engineering offers a combined five-year degree program leading to the Bachelor of Science and a Master of Science.

Under the combined degree program, an undergraduate student begins taking courses required for a master’s degree before completing the requirements for a bachelor’s degree and typically completes the requirements for a Master of Science in Civil, Environmental, and Sustainable Engineering within a year of completing the bachelor’s degree.

Undergraduate students admitted to the combined degree program are required to enroll in the program between February of their junior year and December of their senior year. Students in this program will receive their bachelor’s degree after satisfying the standard undergraduate degree requirements. To earn a master’s degree, students must fulfill all requirements for the degree, including the completion of 46 units of coursework beyond that applied to the bachelor’s degree. No individual course can be used to satisfy requirements for both the bachelor’s degree and master’s degree. Please see this page for more details
