What sets us apart and makes this program your best choice?
Clarkson Alumni Network
Clarkson’s success in the construction industry is well established in its alumni network having leaders at all levels of the industry. This program will feature alumni and other industry leaders as part of a special topics course, giving students first-hand knowledge of industry trends.
Strong Construction Engineering Curricula
Clarkson’s Civil and Environmental Engineering department has been a regional leader in construction engineering education for decades, throughout New York State and well beyond. This strong foundation is built into this MS degree, so that students can build on their undergraduate degree and meet the ASCE goal of at least 30 credit hours of post-undergraduate study for practicing engineers.
Flexible and Practical Program
This program is built with the learner in mind. It will allow for on-campus, off campus, part-time and/or full-time study. The coursework will be focused on practical application, current industry techniques and emerging trends and technology. This degree isn’t focused on research, it focuses on how to use engineering principles in an applied manner. Ideal for the working professional, it also is a perfect continuation of undergraduate studies for those entering the construction industry.
Professional Development and Certifications/Accreditations
Certain courses in this program provide gateways to such accreditations as a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Associate and/or an Envision Sustainable Professional. As an educational provider in civil engineering in New York State, Clarkson can provide professional development hours for use in maintaining credentials or licensure within some courses.
Building to a Complete Degree
Finally, the program has been made to grow with the learner. Individual sessions award PDH credit, individual courses provide immediate tangible use and preparation for accreditation, groupings of courses can lead to an award of a professional certificate, and with a tailored project, the completion of coursework leads to a master’s degree.
