The ITCE program brings information, communication and computing technology to the civil and environmental engineering professionals, who otherwise have little opportunity to be exposed to the rapidly changing technologies and techniques in these areas. The program will provide the opportunity to learn the basics and application techniques of these technologies in an organized, systematic, and formal setting. The program offers a set of carefully selected courses on computing and information technologies tailored to the needs of engineers in the fields of civil and environmental engineering, including structural, transportation, geotechnical, construction, and water resources engineering. The ITCE program also provides specialization opportunities for professionals interested in developing computer and information technology applications in the civil and environmental engineering fields. This program will help professional engineers (PE’s) earn continuing education credits required to retain their registration. Interested students will be able to continue to earn a Master of Science in Civil Engineering degree if the admission requirements for the Masters program are met. This certificate program is open to both degree- and non-degree seeking students.
A minimum undergraduate GPA of 2.75 is required for admission. International graduate student applicants whose native language is not English are required to submit a score for the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or for the International English Language Testing System (IELTS). A total score of 80 on the iBT TOEFL or 6.5 overall on the IELTS is required. To earn a graduate certificate in ITCE, the students must successfully complete the program’s core and elective courses.
The ITCE curriculum consists of 18 credit hours – six courses (three core + three elective) of three credit hours each as shown.
