The M.S. degree program with an emphasis in Infrastructure Materials Engineering is intended to provide students with a strong background in infrastructure materials for careers in the design of new sustainable materials and efficient use of conventional materials for infrastructure applications, forensics and repair. The program permits considerable flexibility in the selection of courses and participation in research experiences, thereby allowing students to tailor the M.S. program according to their background and educational objectives.

The student is responsible for developing a suitable program of coursework and research in consultation with a faculty advisor in IME. Graduate students in IME must follow all rules and requirements of the Graduate School and the Civil Engineering M.S. degree program.
