Structural Requirements

CEE graduate students pursuing a Master’s in Structural Engineering are required to take four the following core courses:

  • CEE 5930/6930 Structural Loads*

  • CEE 6130 Structural Dynamics*

  • CEE 6140 Advanced Reinforced Concrete Design

  • CEE 6040 Structural Reliability*

  • CEE 6050 Experimental Methods in Structural Engineering

  • CEE 6930 Precast/Prestressed Concrete*

  • CEE 6930 Advanced Steel Design

* Required courses. If any graduate core courses are not offered in a given year, a graduate elective course may be substituted, subject to approval of the graduate committee.

Note that with approval from the graduate committee, required courses can be waived if the student has successfully completed an equivalent course at Utah State University or elsewhere.
