Civil Engineering w/o a B.A. in engineering?

sojirlegansojirlegan Registered User Posts: 2 New Member
Hello I am thinking about pursuing civil engineering at the masters level.

Fairleigh Dickinson University- Florham Campus does not have an engineering or a physics major, and I was thinking that if i major in a science for undergrad, that I would be able to apply to a civil engineering program at the masters level. However, I heard that another university, Drew University, has an agreement with the Columbia SEAS program for engineering.

I do not want to transfer if I don't have to, what are my options if I want to become a civil engineer?

Thanks in advance.

    You should contact some civil engineering graduate programs and see what they say. I know that at UT-Austin, you have to have a BS in civil engineering before you can be accepted to the graduate program.

    Your other post indicates that you already have a bachelor's degree in economics and international relations.

    For civil engineering, you probably need to look for schools that allow second bachelor's degree students to study for ABET-accredited civil engineering bachelor's degrees.
