The civil and environmental engineering undergraduate honors program involves an in-depth research study in an area proposed to and agreed to by a department of civil and environmental engineering faculty adviser and completion of a thesis of high quality. The research option is intended for students who seek a concentrated research experience, culminating in an undergraduate thesis, integrated into their undergraduate studies in civil engineering. The department of civil engineering offers an undergraduate bs degree in civil engineering, and graduate degrees of hours of thesis must be taken in the last semester (semester of graduation) the students with abet accredited engineering degrees (other than civil), non-abet accredited engineering degrees, and non-. What is undergraduate research as an undergrad, you have the opportunity to prepare for future jobs or further studies by participating in world-class engineering research projects alongside faculty and graduate students through established programs like the texas transportation institute. The handbook for undergraduate engineering programs contains full details for all undergraduate programs in the civil and environmental engineering department the link above will take you to the undergraduate handbook (ughb) home, where you can download the full handbook or portions thereof.
The department of civil, environmental, and sustainable engineering offers a well-balanced undergraduate program that strives to develop graduates who are capable of solving complex problems with fixed and oftentimes limited resources. Requirements for the civil engineering program gpa a minimum of 30 gpa on a 40 point system, over the past two years of full-time study (a minimum of 10 full-course equivalents or 60 units) of the undergraduate degree. The ms degree in the environmental engineering sciences track (see below) is for students with science, math, or similar undergraduate degrees, and usually requires that students take a number of undergraduate engineering courses as articulation to become fully prepared for graduate work in environmental engineering. Undergraduate programs master of science program doctoral programs courses thesis, and examinations, but differ in residence requirements and in certain administrative details selection of appropriate courses inside and outside the civil engineering and engineering mechanics department is determined in consultation with the faculty.
Students may perform research at the undergraduate level under the supervision of a faculty advisor either for payment or academic course credit (not both simultaneously) cee students typically do research in a professor's lab, under the guidance of the professor or an advanced phd student or post-doctoral assistant who works for that professor. Students enrolled, or with degrees, in non-engineering disciplines often may not have the necessary level of preparation to be able to complete the ms degree requirements in 1 academic year in some cases, students may not even be admissible to the program without additional undergraduate coursework. Cee graduate programs welcome the department of civil and environmental engineering at uva offers several options for advanced study an advanced degree can enhance employment options in industry, government, or academia. Undergraduate thesis archive this page lists all undergraduate theses in the industrial engineering department (ie. 4 great hints on how to complete an undergraduate dissertation on civil engineering your undergraduate work is an essential part of your academic career it lays a foundation upon which you will build your graduate work later.
