All specialty aspects of civil engineering which align with the UL Lafayette Department of Civil Engineering faculty's areas of expertise can serve as potential specialization areas for both course selection and thesis topics. Example areas of particular emphasis by the department include hydraulics, engineering mechanics, coastal engineering, construction materials, environmental engineering, structures, and transportation engineering.

Course Requirements


For the Thesis Program, thirty (30) semester hours of graduate credit with a minimum GPA of 3.0 are required as follows: (1) a minimum of 12 credit hours of 500 and/or 400G level graduate courses in the Civil Engineering Department with 6 of these credit hours being two core department courses that will be identified for the student upon acceptance into the program. [Note that no more than 9 graduate credit hours may be courses below the 500 level.]; (2) 6 credit hours achieved by the successful passing of two college-level core graduate courses: ENGR 501  and MCHE 508 ; (3) a minimum of 3 credit hours of either civil engineering, mathematics, statistics, or the sciences, and (4) a minimum of 3 credit hours of additional graduate course work from either the Civil Engineering Department or another engineering department; and (5) a minimum of 6 credit hours of thesis work and a thesis approved by the graduate committee.
