Civil and structural engineers have significant continuing education options for elevating their careers.

By Bob Drake

Opportunities to elevate your professional skills and knowledge while working fulltime as a civil or structural engineer have never been greater — if you can find the time and money. Civil + Structural Engineer’s annual directory has expanded to include 82 schools that confer master’s degrees through online study in a range of relevant disciplines such as civil, structural, geotechnical, environmental, or sustainable engineering; project, construction, or engineering management; geospatial technologies; and even unmanned systems (i.e., drones).

In addition, many of the schools listed here offer online certificate programs in specialized fields of study that, in many cases, can later be applied toward a master’s degree.
