Civil Engineering

The benefits of a Masters extend beyond improving your earning potential. They can provide you with personal and professional skills to accelerate your development. They are also an opportunity to differentiate yourself from your peers, many of whom will have similar A-level and undergraduate qualifications.

A discipline of professional engineering, civil engineering has to do with designing, constructing and maintaining manmade structures such as dams, canals and roads. The term “civil” is used to distinguish this field from military engineering.

The USA remains the world’s most popular destination for international students. Universities in the US dominate the world rankings and the country also offers a wide variety of exciting study locations. State university systems are partially subsidized by state governments, and may have many campuses spread around the state, with hundreds of thousands of students.

Maryland is a state of US and sharing borders with Virginia, West Virginia and District of Columbia. Many historic and highly ranked universities serve this state. There are a number of specialized training colleges which train the physicians, dentists, attorneys, engineers, social workers and pharmaceutics.

Masters in Civil Engineering in Maryland in USA. The graduate program in Environmental Engineering provides a core background in water chemistry, environmental biology, and process dynamics. Advanced course work in water and wastewater treatment, bioremediation, pollutants and risk, ground and surface water hydrology, and air pollution is available in Civil Engineering and other allied departments. Environmental Engineering Research Original research is a primary component of a graduate program. Current fundamental environmental research will serve as the basis for solving the problems faced by future generations. Practical engineering research is necessary to solve current environmental problems. The following are some of the research topics that Environmental Engineering students and faculty have explored in the last few years: Airborne Transport of Pesticides Biological Nutrient Removal Bioremediation of Subsurface Contaminants Fate of Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals in Wastewater Treatment Grass Swales for Treatment of Roadway Runoff Pathogen Fate and Treatment in Bioretention Suspended Solids Capture and Accumulation in Bioretention Dissolution of Nonaqueous Phase Contaminants Environmental Engineering research is conducted in four very well equipped, air-conditioned laboratories totaling approximately 3000 square feet. Recent Thesis and Dissertation Titles Characterization and Mobilization of Arsenic in Various Contaminated Materials Design and Construction of Low Power, Portable Photocatalytic Water Treatment Unit using Light Emitting Diode Effect of Terminal Electron Accepting Processes on Acetate Thresholds in Contaminated Sediments The Fate and Behavior of Octyl- and Nonylphenol Ethoxylates and Their Derivatives in Three American Wastewater Treatment Plants and The Back River, Maryland A Field Demonstration of a Quantitative Framework for Defining the Limits on In Situ Bioremediation Field Evaluation of Hydrologic and Water Quality Benefits of Grass Swales for Managing Highway Runoff Field Field Evaluation of Low Impact Development Practices for Treatment of Highway Runoff in an Ultra Urban Area Subsurface Heterogeneities, Interfaces and Biodegradation: Defining the Limits on In Situ Bioremediation The Use of Hatchery Residual Biosorbent for Removal of Heavy Metals from Wastewater Course Requirements For the Master of Science degree, three Core courses are required for all students: ENCE 650 - Process Dynamics of Environmental Systems ENCE 651 - Chemistry of Natural Waters ENCE 637 - Biological Principles of Environmental Engineering Additionally, three other courses should be selected. The remaining 2 or 4 courses (depending on the degree option chosen) are electives and must be approved by the student's advisor. [-]

Recent advances in computing, communications, sensing, and materials science are enabling the design of a new generation of large scale civil engineering systems. Signature applications that are new to Civil Engineering due to these advances include: The next generation power grid that will link time-sensitive demand from home appliances, electric power cars, renewable energy sources, and other features for efficiency gains The Pearl River Tower Complex will be the most energy efficient skyscraper ever built (scheduled for completion in 2010) A Next Generation air traffic control and management system that incorporates advanced new vehicles, modernized avionics, and increasing levels of autonomy Modernization of waterways such as the Panama Canal and Bosporus Straights, Global natural gas and other energy supply chains (e.g., oil, coal) which involve a combination of engineering challenges as well as market, national, or regional goals Sustainable development for high-density urban areas. These systems will be required to support new functionality such as new types of interaction between infrastructure and people, have levels of performance that were previously unobtainable (e.g., in energy usage), and be economically efficient. In many cases, enhanced functionality and performance will be achieved through an improved ability to anticipate demand, monitor the surrounding (natural) environment, control system responses, and look ahead and anticipate events. Sometimes automation will replace some operations currently handled by humans. Future CEE systems will be far more heterogeneous than their predecessors and may be connected to other types of systems in completely new ways. This makes the task of system design, analysis and integration of multi-disciplinary concerns (e.g., reliability, efficiency, and system tradeoffs) much more difficult than in the past. Additionally, there is strong linkage between civil infrastructure systems and public policy or societal goals. Consider challenges in energy management and transportation or energy networks. If we want to reduce carbon emissions in the power and other sectors, how much do we need to change our current power grid in light of: Increased renewable generation (e.g., wind) and transmission expansion to connect the supply in less populated areas to where the load is in more populated regions The strong interaction between vehicle usage and carbon emissions (e.g., the role of electric cars on the current power grid) Using natural gas or other less carbon intense fossil fuels for the nation’s fleet of vehicles Objectives of the Civil Systems Program The goal of the University of Maryland Civil Systems program is to provide M.S and Ph.D. level education in interdisciplinary engineering systems typically found in civil infrastructure settings. The related research will concentrate on how to optimize system efficiency, reliability, cost, and other factors. Admission Requirements: Full admission as a degree seeking student requires the following prerequisites: A bachelor's degree, GPA of 3.0 or better, in engineering; preferably Civil and Environmental, however other engineering degrees may be considered, from an accredited institution. Courses in mathematics (Calculus I, II, III, & Differential Equations) are required to be considered for admission. Specific prerequisite requirements for specialization: Environmental & Water Resources: Thermodynamics, Fluid Mechanics, Heat Transfer, ENCE 310, 411, 412, 431, 432 Geotechnical & Pavements: ENCE 340, 441, 447 Structures: ENCE 353, 454, 455 Transportation: ENCE 370, 470, 472 Further admissions requirements. Completed applications are reviewed and considered for admission on a case-by-case basis. [-]
