For the civil engineering dual degree program, you are able to double-count up to 18 credits, thereby reducing the number of total credits to 60 (for MURP-CWO) or 66 (for MURP-Plan A). Students specialize in either Transportation Planning and Engineering or Environmental Planning and Engineering.
The MURP degree requires 48 credits, including up to 12 CE credits for civil engineering dual degree program students. (To be eligible for double-counting, the 12 CE credits must be taken from a list of pre-approved courses.) You complete all required core courses and an internship. MURP Plan-A students write a separate Plan A paper.
The MSCE degree requires 30 credits, of which 14 must be in your major field and six outside (to be eligible for double-counting, the six outside credits must be taken from a list of pre-approved PA courses). The remaining 10 credits are thesis credits if Plan A (with thesis) or coursework credits if Plan B (non-thesis). You also can focus on environmental planning or transportation planning.
