Civil Engineering Plus One

PlusOne with MS in Civil Engineering

PlusOne with MS in Civil Engineering

Overview

Accelerated Master’s degrees allow students to accelerate the attainment of the master’s degree by applying graduate credits taken as an undergraduate toward both the undergraduate and graduate degrees. Current students apply to enroll in the Accelerated Master’s Program.

With the PlusOne program, students attain their bachelor’s degree followed by a PlusOne year to complete the master’s degree.

Visit the relevant master’s degree program page for more information about the PlusOne pathway and degree requirements. Also, review the Curriculum Guides and the Accelerated Master’s Programs Policies and Procedures.
