Graduate Programs

The Civil and Environmental Engineering Department at Idaho State University offers Master of Science in Civil Engineering, Master of Science in Environmental Engineering, Master of Science in Environmental Engineering and Ph.D. in Engineering and Applied Science.

Focus Areas

  • Geotechnical Engineering
  • Hydraulics/Water Resources Engineering
  • Structural/Earthquake Engineering
  • Environmental Engineering

 


Master of Science in Civil Engineering

Program Objectives

  • Enhance the knowledge of graduates in the advanced concepts in Civil Engineering fields such as structures, mechanics, finite element methods, geotechnics, and transportation.
  • Increase the ability of graduates to synthesize and apply these advanced concepts to develop realistic designs in fields related to civil engineering and to solve identified problems, and design strategies for implementing them safely, ethically, and effectively.
  • Enhance the ability of graduates to communicate these concepts effectively both in oral and written formats.

Program Overview

The M.S. program in Civil Engineering is designed to provide advanced study, both theoretically and experimentally, in structures, mechanics, finite element methods, water resources, and geotechnics. This program prepares the student for advanced placement in the civil engineering field in industry, research, or development areas. Additionally, this program provides a suitable base for entrance into a Ph.D. program in a field related to Civil Engineering. The program is offered both at the Pocatello and the Idaho Falls campuses, primarily through the use of telecommunications/distance learning, which includes partial in-class instruction.

 


Master of Science in Environmental Engineering

Program Objectives

  • Enhance the knowledge of graduates in the advanced concepts of environmental control and remediation, involving a significant fraction of the following: chemistry, water & waste water quality, air quality, radioactive material handling and disposal, environmental laws and regulations, global environmental issues, and cost benefit analyses.
  • Increase the ability of graduates to synthesize and apply these advanced concepts to develop realistic environmental engineering designs and to solve identified problems, designing strategies for implementing them safely, ethically, and effectively.
  • Enhance the ability of graduates to communicate these concepts effectively both in oral and written formats.

Program Overview

This program is designed to provide the student with advanced technical training in environmental engineering, with an emphasis on hazardous waste treatment and control. The program fills a need in industry and government for professionals with a broad understanding of the technical aspects of environmental issues. Students enrolled in the program are generally expected to have a sufficient background in mathematics and chemistry (a minimum of one year of general chemistry). Students with an insufficient background in engineering and math are required to make up the deficiencies according to the advice of their advisory committee (usually includes ENGR 307, CE 332, ME 341).

 


Master of Science in Environmental Science and Management

Program Objectives

  • Enhance and broaden the knowledge of graduates in the advanced concepts in environmental sciences including, but not limited to, biological sciences, chemistry, geosciences, mathematics, pharmaceutical sciences, physics, political science, and business.
  • Increase the ability of graduates to synthesize and apply these advanced concepts to develop realistic management in fields related to environmental sciences and to solve identified problems, and management strategies for implementing them safely, ethically, and effectively.
  • Prepare students for positions of leadership by enhancing the ability of graduates to communicate effectively the rapidly changing environmental concepts both in oral and written formats.

Program Overview

The Environmental Science and Management (ENSM) Program is designed to allow students to combine courses in environmental engineering with related courses in an interdisciplinary area of emphasis. Interdisciplinary course work may come from a combination of courses from the following emphasis areas: Biological Sciences, Chemistry, Geosciences, Mathematics, Pharmaceutical Sciences, Physics, Political Science, and Business.

The program fills a need in industry and government for professionals with a broad understanding of the scientific aspects of environmental issues. Students enrolled in the program are generally expected to have a sufficient background in mathematics and chemistry (a minimum of one year of general chemistry). Students with an insufficient background in engineering and math are required to make up the deficiencies (usually includes CHEM 1111/1111L, CHEM 1112/1112L, MATH 1160).
