Structural Engineering

100% Online

The Civil and Environmental Engineering Department at the J. B. Speed School of Engineering offers an online graduate certificate program in structural engineering to help professionals gain expertise in the field. This certificate provides an excellent opportunity for professionals with a B.S. in Civil Engineering degree who::

  • May have received a job assignment that requires knowledge in structural engineering
  • May have fundamental knowledge in civil engineering, but may need additional skills and formal education in the field of structural engineering
  • May need a credential alternative to a full master’s degree
  • May want to save time and money by choosing to complete a certificate program

The graduate certificate in structural engineering is comprised of 4 courses (3 required core courses and 1 elective) for a total of 12 credit hours. The online program can be completed within one year.

Credits earned may be applied to the Master’s in Civil Engineering. Students must apply and be admitted to the Master’s program separately.

As the U.S. economy continues to grow, the need for well-prepared professionals with specialized expertise is also increasing. ASCE’s 2017 Infrastructure Report Card indicates that the United States’ needs are significant and civil engineers must lead the charge to develop a more resilient and sustainable infrastructure. Raising the grades on the U.S. infrastructure will require a skilled workforce able to seek and adopt a wide range of solutions.
