Online Graduate Programs

    4

    Looking to take your next career step and earn a master’s degree in civil engineering or a related discipline, but you travel constantly or don’t live near an accredited university with a civil engineering program? An increasing number of schools offer distance learning, online programs that may be an effective option. Online programs typically have the same admission and graduation requirements of traditional programs, requiring 27 to 36 credits for a master’s degree. In addition to the following schools that offer complete online master’s degree programs in civil engineering and related fields, many more engineering schools offer at least some courses online for their master’s degree programs.

    Also check out the Accredited Online Colleges website (www.accreditedonlinecolleges.org) to find accredited online colleges in the United States. Accredited Online Colleges lets users search through accredited schools based on a variety of criteria such as degrees offered and also provides accreditation information for each listed school.

    If you are looking to increase your business knowledge and obtain a master’s in business administration (MBA), check out the MBA online programs directory at www.mbaonline.com. The website presents both offline and online educational paths to obtain a degree in business management or a related field. Links are provided to some of the top-ranked online MBA programs.
