Engineering & Technology

In order to successfully obtain a Masters qualification, you will need to obtain a number of credits by passing individual modules. Most taught Masters will have a number of core modules which you must take and pass in order to obtain the qualification. The assessment of research Masters is almost always entirely by a single dissertation module or project.

Studies in engineering and technology prepare you for the technologically oriented workforce of today.

Members of the workforce with engineering and technology training are sought out by many industries including medical research and computer software development.

 

The United States of America is a large country in North America, often referred to as the "USA", the "US", the "United States", "America", or simply "the States". American colleges are funded by "tuition" charged to the student, which is often quite expensive, very commonly reaching into the tens of thousands of dollars per year.

North Dakota is a US state, located in the Upper Midwestern region. 13 public, five tribal and four private higher education institution serve this state. Fargo, Bismarck, Minot and Mandan are the major cities of this state.

Masters in Engineering & Technology in North Dakota in USA. The Department of Civil Engineering offers graduate programs leading to the Master of Engineering degree and the Master of Science degree. The Master of Engineering degree permits specialization in the following options: soils-structures engineering, environmental engineering, water resources engineering, and general civil engineering. The Master of Engineering degree program is designed to provide an opportunity for engineers to achieve formal education beyond the Baccalaureate level with a strong and directed emphasis toward the practice of engineering. The focus of the program is on the development of competency in the area of engineering design. The goal of the program is development of the student as a practitioner capable of systematically solving complex problems of society within his or her field. The Master of Science degree in Civil Engineering prepares students for careers in research, practice and further studies toward a Ph.D. degree in a speciality area in civil engineering. The M.S. degree is typically completed in 18-24 months of full-time study for students holding a bachelor's degree in civil engineering from an accredited school. The M.S. degree requires independent research for a thesis in the student's area of interest. The faculty research interests are in the broad areas of environmental, geotechnical, pavements, structural engineeirng and mechanics, and water resources engineering. Graduate students are encouraged to explore various topics for their M.S. theses depending on the mutual interest between them and the faculty. The Department offers a combined Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering/Master of Engineering, and Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering/Master of Science degree programs. The intention of the combined program is to allow qualified students to complete requirements for both a baccalaureate degree and a master’s degree in 12-18 months beyond the time required to complete the baccalaureate degree. See Combined Degree Program under the College of Engineering & Mines section for additional details. The Department of Civil Engineering also participates in an interdisciplinary Ph.D. Engineering Program. See Ph.D. Program under the College of Engineering & Mines section or contact the Civil Engineering Department. Details pertaining to admission requirements, degree requirements and courses offered can be found on pages 335-336 of the 2011-2013 UND Academic Catalog. Mission Statement and Program Goals The mission of the Master of Engineering program in Civil Engineering is to prepare students for careers in private and public practice of civil engineering and related fields. The major emphasis of the program is to foster a deeper understanding of the engineering design process. The program has four main options. These are soils-structures engineering, environmental engineering, water resources engineering, and general civil engineering. Goal 1: Students will build on knowledge gained in their undergraduate program of study to achieve a fuller understanding of civil engineering and the engineering design process. Goal 2: Students will perform a detailed design project in a specific focus area related to civil engineering. Goal 3: Graduates will be prepared for a career in private or public practice in civil engineering and related fields. Admission Requirements The applicant must meet the Graduate School's current minimum general admission requirements as published in the Graduate Catalog. 1. Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering from an ABET accredited or equivalent program. 2. Graduate Record Examination General Test for applicants from non-ABET accredited programs. 3. A cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) of at least 2.5 for all undergraduate work or a GPA of at least 3.0 for the junior and senior years of undergraduate work (based on A = 4.00). 4. Satisfy the Graduate School's English Language Proficiency requirements as published in the Graduate Catalog. Degree Requirements Students seeking the Master of Engineering degree at the University of North Dakota must satisfy all general requirements set forth by the Graduate School as well as particular requirements set forth by the Civil Engineering Department. 1. A minimum of 30 semester credits in a major option, including the credits granted for the design project and the research leading to the design project.. 2. At least one-half of the credits must be at or above the 500-level. 3. A maximum of one-fourth of the credit hours required for the degree may be transferred from another institution. 4. Preparation of a written design project approved by the faculty advisor. 5. Comprehensive final examination. 6. Required Courses [-]
