Master of Science in Civil Engineering
The Master of Science in Civil Engineering (Construction Engineering) teaches professionals to understand and execute the broad array of technical and non-technical activities associated with construction engineering and facilities management.
As a graduate of this program you will be successful in solving construction engineering and management problems. You will also be competent in facilities management. This program provides the necessary skills and technological tools to enhance your career, and will prepare you for a variety of employment opportunities in the construction industry, including working for general contractors, real estate developers, and architectural engineering firms.
The construction field spans the elements of construction technology, construction engineering, and project management, making effective construction engineering highly complex. In many cases it requires a profound awareness of the technical, economic and political environment. The Construction Engineering graduate program at USC covers the most current theories and practices needed by the construction engineering professional. It is taught by faculty who hold particular prominence in the field and is complemented by the instructional programs of the Marshall School of Business and the Epstein Department of Industrial & Systems Engineering.
A variety of career opportunities exist, but primarily in the areas of:
