5-year Dual Degree Program in Civil Engineering

The Department offers a 5-year bachelor of science and master of science degree program in civil engineering. Learn more about the requirements.
 

Professional Degree Requirements

The professional degree program is designed for individuals who want in-depth study in their field beyond a master's degree, but who want to concentrate on applied subject material rather than on basic science. This post-master's program provides advanced study in preparation for pragmatic application and leads to the degree of Engineer or of Applied Scientist. In addition to the requirements listed in the Graduate Programs Bulletin, the student plans and undertakes a six-credit-hour design project or prepares a comprehensive technical report demonstrating his ability to make independent use of the knowledge he has acquired.
 

Off-campus Programs

The Department also offers its civil engineering degree program at GW's Virginia Science and Technology Campus.
