Master of Civil Engineering degree (non-thesis)

  • Requires a minimum of 30 semester hours of graduate course work, which may include three semester hours of Civil Engineering Project (CIVL 7980) but taking CIVL 7980 is not a mandatory requirement.
  • Courses in related fields outside of the department can be taken as part of the mandatory 30 hours.
  • Student may transfer up to six credit hours of graduate courses from another institution or from another graduate degree upon the approval by the student's advisory committee.
  • Credit hours for 7990 Research and thesis cannot be counted toward graduation requirements for non-thesis degree (e.g., M.C.E.) programs (from Graduate School).
  • The specific plan of study must be approved by the student's advisory committee.
  • No language requirement.
  • No residency requirement.
  • Do not need to submit the form 8 (student comprehensive examination form) since it does not require a comprehensive exam or project defense.
  • Should submit a graduation check request to the Graduate School prior to the semester of expected graduation.
  • Graduation day is the official last day of each semester and, therefore, is the deadline for approved plans of study and graduation checks for graduation in the following semester.
  • Because there is no residency requirement, the M.C.E. (in the environmental and structural engineering area only) can be obtained anywhere in the world through the Auburn Engineering Graduate Online Program.
  • Special requirements (prerequisites) for students holding college degrees in fields other than civil engineering.
