Reengineer the World … and Your Future

Today’s civil engineers are actively creating the world of tomorrow with forward-thinking designs and innovative solutions. Projects leverage sophisticated technologies and new materials to construct the infrastructure of modern life. Builds are planned with cost-efficiency and sustainability in mind, and civil engineering opportunities continue to grow around the world.

Established countries are updating their aging infrastructures; developing nations are beginning to build transit and water systems; and fast-emerging cities are constructing awe-inspiring edifices with extreme features. The future can lead just about anywhere … to a rooftop irrigation system in Dubai, a new highway in Africa, or your local public works office around the corner.

Why Choose NJIT’s Online Master of Science in Civil Engineering

This program is designed to develop the next generation of civil engineers; the men and women who will solve the complex infrastructure problems of the 21st century. Choosing to study with New Jersey Institute of Technology can help you compete for a leadership role in the high-tech engineering world of today … and tomorrow.

Curriculum within the Online Master of Science in Civil Engineering program concentrates on three major areas of need within the civil engineering profession – construction, transportation, and water resources. Students can choose to follow one of three specialty tracks.

Structural Design and Construction

This specialty has been created for civil engineers who want to gain greater knowledge of construction and structural engineering, including the planning and management of infrastructure projects. Coursework may include (but is not limited to):

  • Construction Cost Estimating
  • Construction Management
  • Infrastructure and Facilities Remediation
  • Project Planning and Control
  • Stability of Structures
  • Structural Dynamics
  • Underground Construction

Transportation

This specialty has been created for civil engineers who want learn more about the design, modeling, forecasting, planning, and operation of transportation facilities and systems that support safe and efficient highway, rail, water, and air travel. Coursework may include (but is not limited to):

  • Public Transportation Operations and Technology
  • Traffic Control
  • Traffic Studies and Capacity
  • Urban Transportation Planning

Construction Management

This specialty has been created for civil engineers who aspire to leadership positions within engineering and construction firms. Coursework may include (but is not limited to):

  • Construction Law
  • Contractor Management
  • Cost Estimating
  • Facilities Maintenance
  • Financial Planning
  • Project Control

All specialties also offer the opportunity to study Hydrology, Management Science, Organizational Behavior, Legal Aspects of Construction, and other subjects of interest targeted to our students’ goals and needs.



Focus On: PE Licensure

Successful completion of the Online Master of Science in Civil Engineering program helps to put our graduates one step closer to obtaining their Professional Engineer (PE) license. That’s because earning your degree from New Jersey Institute of Technology can replace one of the four years of experience required for licensure (in most states). Our goal is to give you every advantage in growing your career into a lead engineer or project manager role.



Who Should Choose NJIT’s Online Master of Science in Civil Engineering

This program has been created for civil engineers who want to reinforce and validate their expertise, while developing the leadership and project management skills necessary to advance their careers.

Our students are able to apply what they learn to their current projects and position themselves for new opportunities managing large civil engineering projects. Many private, government, and military organizations are searching for civil engineers who have the right balance of hands-on technical knowledge and an understanding of what it takes to be a successful leader.

The Online Master of Science in Civil Engineering can provide you with actionable skills if you are in a career (or interested in a career) with accountability for:

  • Leading road, railroad, airport, bridge, harbor, channel, dam, irrigation, pipeline, and water and/or sewage system projects.
  • Planning, designing, and overseeing construction and maintenance of building structures and facilities.
  • Modeling and forecasting traffic volume and patterns.
  • Designing and operating intelligent traffic control systems.
  • Using quantitative methods to maximize project performance, efficiency and sustainability.
  • Making engineering decisions that balance financial, environmental, and political considerations.

Here at New Jersey Institute of Technology, you will have the additional advantage of a curriculum that is rooted in a strong technological knowledge base. This alone is critical to being able to effectively navigate today’s civil engineering industry.



Engineering the Right Path Forward

Earning an advanced degree requires a dedicated commitment on your part. An online program like ours makes the challenge easier by giving you the flexibility to learn on your own schedule, from your home, office or wherever you may be travelling on business. You will earn the same exact degree as you would in the classroom setting.

Still, you must be willing to take on tough assignments, create presentations and reports, and network online with faculty and your fellow students. The goal is to ensure that you are ready for real-world engineering scenarios that have profit, safety, and social implications.

If you think you have what it takes, now is the time to explore the opportunities presented by New Jersey Institute of Technology. We encourage you to learn more about our Online Master of Science in Civil Engineering today.
