The Civil and Environmental Engineering Program offers both research and teaching assistantships. Generally, decisions about assistantships are not made until after a student has applied and been accepted into our program. Assistantships are awarded to qualified students as funds are made available. The compensation level depends on several factors including the qualifications of the student and whether it is a M.S. or Ph.D. program. All students on assistantships receive a complete tuition waiver. Assistantships are evaluated on a semester basis or as funds become available.
It is the policy of the department that Masters students supported by university-related financial aid complete an integrated project, which is defined as a Thesis (Civil Engineering/Environmental Engineering 500) or Special Problem (Civil Engineering/Environmental Engineering 590). The appointment letter may specify which of the two options must be selected.
