""The University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) offers a Master of Engineering (MEng) degree with a concentration in Structural Engineering (SE), within the Department of Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering. Our students have an opportunity to advance their knowledge in the technical and management sides of structural engineering through a fully online delivery method. The 19-month curriculum focuses on empowering working professionals with the knowledge to meet today’s engineering challenges. UAB’s online Master of Engineering program has been nationally ranked by U.S. News and World Report.

Planning for the Future

All structural engineers must be technically proficient, and an undergraduate degree in Civil Engineering is often no longer sufficient to gain the technical proficiency needed to be immediately productive. Furthermore, a typical career path for a structural engineer increases in managerial responsibility over time. The MEng program with a concentration in structural engineering is designed to meet both these needs by combining coursework in structural engineering to improve our students’ immediate productivity in structural design with coursework in engineering management to prepare our students for future growth in the business of structural engineering.

Fully Online and Convenient to All Students

The MEng with a concentration in Structural Engineering is offered fully online, making it more convenient and available to students from around the nation and the world. As a post-professional degree, the program was developed in a way to fit the schedules and needs of students already working in or wanting to pursue careers in the structural design of civil infrastructure. The curriculum was designed to provide a rigorous challenge for students who are academically committed, self-motivated, and ready to learn in-depth technologies and methods in the area of structural engineering.

All students pay the same tuition and the GRE is not required for admission for students in the U.S. with qualifying degrees. Students should have a bachelor’s degree in Civil or Mechanical Engineering from an ABET-accredited college or university or a bachelor’s degree in a closely related science major for admission into the program and to be able to get the most out of the coursework.
