Full-time students have the option of applying for admission into the five-year combined Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering/Master of Science in Civil Engineering program. A cumulative undergraduate GPA of 3.00 or higher is generally considered the minimum required for consideration for admission into the combined BS/MS Program.
A student in the MSCE program can focus on environmental, geotechnical, structural, transportation or water resources engineering. The student can also combine areas of interest into an interdisciplinary MSCE program.
Typical Five-Year Plan
- Earn a BS degree after four years of study and complete the 30-credit requirement for the MS degree with one additional year of work.
- Generally, a student in the BS/MS program completes two graduate courses during their senior year and completes the remainder of the graduate program over the 12-month period following the senior year.
- A student may opt for either a thesis track program or a non-thesis track program; the former may require additional time.
- All graduate courses must be taken at Villanova University.
