major: Coastal and Port Engineering

Degree: Master of Science in Civil Engineering (MSCE) 2022-2023

Major Requirements

The Civil Engineering Master's Degree (MSCE) consists of a minimum of thirty credit hours.
Students in the Civil Engineering Major may select either a thesis or a non-thesis option. Students in the Coastal and Port Engineering major must complete a thesis.

All programs of study must be approved by the School of Engineering Graduate Program Director prior to the end of the second semester of graduate study.

School of Engineering Conditions for the Degree:
  1. All coursework must be completed with a grade of "C" or better.
  2. A GPA of 3.0 must be maintained. If the GPA falls below 3.0, academic probation will result.
  3. No more than 6.0 hours of transfer coursework can be applied to the degree. However, a student may transfer up to 12.0 hours from online graduate classes taken within the Florida State University System, provided the total of all transfer courses does not exceed 12 credit hours.
  4. A student may not receive 5000-level credit for a cross-listed 4000/5000-level course previously completed at the 4000-level. Exceptions to this rule may be considered with documented evidence of significant and appropriate differences in content between the courses.
