Quick Facts

 
Full-time Duration: 2 years
Starting in: August, January
Tuition Fee: $10,063 per semester
Location: Tucson, United States

The Civil Engineering and Engineering Mechanics program is offered from University of Arizona.

The successful candidate must demonstrate the ability to devise and execute a program of study and research, which makes a fundamentally new contribution to the chosen field. The most important aspect of the doctoral program is the dissertation, which is the evidence of this fundamental contribution.

Educational Opportunity

The student should be prepared for a very demanding period of study beyond the master’s degree.

A minor field may be selected from architecture, chemistry, environmental engineering, geology, mathematics, mechanical engineering, materials science and engineering, mining engineering, nuclear engineering, physics, or systems engineering, or from within the Department of Civil Engineering and Engineering Mechanics. Still other fields are available as minors with the approval of the head of the department.

At the option of the department, a Master of Science degree may be awarded to candidates for the Doctor of Philosophy degree who have passed the comprehensive examination, provided they write a thesis or engineering report.

Courses included:

  • Subsurface Fluid Dynamics
  • Numerical Methods in Subsurface Hydrology
  • Probability in Civil Engineering
  • Research Methods and Data Analysis in Civil Engineering
  • Open-Channel Flow
  • Hydrology

“Choosing the Master’s program for Physiological Sciences at the University of Arizona was one of the best decisions I could have made in my education. Our department is warm and collaborative, offering an array of research topics and techniques underneath a vast and integrative umbrella of physiology. Beyond my research experience, I was presented with teaching opportunities, which I feel honed my skill of scientific communication. Having the dynamic research/teaching/class schedule not only kept me active but helped me reinforce material in multiple contexts. Overall, this program was exactly what I wanted in my segway into the medical sciences… and with my teaching assistantship paying for my tuition, how could I say no?”​
