    The College of Engineering at North Carolina State University offers an online Master of Civil Engineering (MCE) degree program for professional engineers who cannot come to campus to earn a graduate degree. The degree program requires the completion of 30 graduate credit hours and does not require a thesis or on-campus residency. The online degree program utilizes streaming video technology to deliver classes captured on campus. The requirements and academic rigor are the same as for on-campus graduate students. Full-time faculty teach in the online program and provide opportunity for communications with distance students through bulletin boards and online chat sessions.
