Master’s and Ph.D. Programs

The Purdue Burke Civil Engineering Graduate Program has nearly 400 students working toward either a Master’s or Ph.D. degree. The Master’s degree program is designed to be flexible so that students can work with faculty members to develop a plan of study tailored to their professional goals. It also allows them to acquire the specialized skills that are increasingly necessary for professional practice (ASCE Policy Statement 465). The Ph.D. degree provides an opportunity for more in-depth study necessary for students who want to pursue research and academic careers.

Master of Science in Civil Engineering, Doctor of Philosophy
