Master's of Science in Civil Engineering

LMU Masters' and Certificate programs in Civil Engineering and Environmental Sciences emphasize a practical understanding of fundamental scientific and engineering principles to sustainably manage and solve environmental problems in natural and urban systems, with an emphasis on the Southwestern United States and Southern California. In our civil engineering program, students can emphasize Environmental Engineering with a focus on application of biological, chemical and physical processes or Water Resources Engineering with a focus on the application and modeling of the movement and storage of water in natural and urban systems. Career enhancing three-course certificates can be obtained in Sustainability, Groundwater Management, Water Quality Management, and Water and Wastewater Treatment.
