Programs overview

The following three degrees are offered by the Department of Civil Engineering. At the undergraduate level, students can earn a BSCE with a primary or secondary emphasis in structural engineering. At the graduate level, both an MSCE and a PhD in Civil Engineering degree can be earned with a specialization in structural engineering. Descriptions of all programs in structural engineering are given with the links below.

The most up-to-date information about courses, policies and procedures can be found in the CEE handbooks. Both the undergraduate and graduate handbooks are available in PDF format at the CEE Handbooks web page.

The excellent teaching by Structural Engineering & Structural Mechanics faculty has been well-recognized by the students, as confirmed by citations of several faculty members on the List of Teachers Ranked as Excellent by Their Students (administered by the Center of Teaching Excellent at the University of Illinois).
