Civil Engineering (B.S.)/Geotechnical Engineering (M.ENG.)

Request Info Visit Apply

Illinois Tech’s Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering/Master of Engineering in Geotechnical Engineering accelerated master's degree program allows students the opportunity to pursue advanced studies and complete both degrees in as few as five years.

Our undergraduate civil engineering program provides breadth in core sub-disciplines (including structures, transportation, and construction management) and depth in at least one area of specialization (at the discretion of the student and academic adviser).

Combined with our graduate program, students will be equipped with the background knowledge and training to analyze, design, and construct structures, and to provide solutions to problems in geotechnical engineering and environmental geotechnics.
