The Master of Science (SM) & Doctor of Philosophy (PhD)

The Master of Science (SM) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) are the research focused graduate degrees in the department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE). Each SM and PhD graduate student in our department is matched with one of our faculty members to work together on the research component of the graduate degree.

Connecting graduate students through research interests with faculty and offering the opportunity for advanced course work is a combination that produces highly successful graduates that emerge as leaders in their fields.

With broad areas of study, we offer students the opportunity to pursue educational goals – through research and course work that is exciting and motivating to you.

The Areas of Study Include:

  • Environmental Chemistry
  • Environmental Fluid Mechanics
  • Ecology and Evolution
  • Hydrology and Hydroclimatology
  • Systems Engineering including Networks and Transportation
  • Materials, Structures and Geomechanics

Degree Requirements

Master of Science
The Master of Science degree is awarded to students who have satisfactorily completed a program of study of at least 66 units of graduate level subjects, approved by the department in which s/he is enrolled, and a 24 unit thesis approved by the department.

Summary of Requirements

  • 66 units of graduate level subjects, of which 34 units are offered by the Department
    of Civil and Environmental Engineering
  • SM Thesis

View the Resources page for SM Guidelines

Doctor of Philosophy
The Doctor of Philosophy degree is awarded to students who have satisfactorily completed a doctoral program in CEE consisting of 96 units of graduate level coursework, including a 3-Subject Core and one breadth subject. The 3-Subject Core reflects core knowledge in the student’s chosen field. The remainder of the doctoral program consists of graduate subjects that complement the Core.

Summary of Requirements

  • 96 units of graduate level subjects, including a three Subject Core and one breadth subject
  • Successful completion of the general exam at the end of academic year 2
  • Successful completion of the PhD proposal
  • PhD Thesis

What do students do with their research degree?
Graduates from our SM and PhD degree tracks go on to top jobs as engineers, faculty members at eminent universities, engineering consultants, leaders for NGOs, and entrepreneurs.

Interdepartmental Program in Transportation (SM and PhD)

Master of Science in Transportation
The interdepartmental Master of Science in Transportation (MST) degree program emphasizes the complexity of transportation and its dependence on the interaction of technology, operations, planning, management and policy-making. For this reason, the Master of Science in Transportation program is interdepartmental. Faculty members and research staff from several centers, departments and divisions within MIT are affiliated with the program and serve as research advisors and mentors to MST students.

Summary of Requirements:

  • 66 units of graduate level subjects consisting of:
    • Core
      • 1.200 Transportation: foundations and methods (12 units)
      • One of the following: (12 units)
      • 1.202 Demand Modeling, or
      • 1.208 Resilient Networks or
      • 1.260 Logistics Systems or
      • 11.478 Behavior and Policy : Connections in Transportation
    • 11.S953  Frontier of Transportation Research (3 units)
    • Computation: one of the following: (12 units)
      • IDS.131 Statistics, Computation and Applications or
      • 6.862 Applied Machine Learning
      • Equivalent subject or higher [petition to Transportation Education Committee]
    • Policy and Technology: select subject in consultation with advisor (9-12 units)
    • Individually designed program from MST program areas (15-18 units)
  • MST Thesis, equivalent to 24 units

Interdepartmental Doctoral Program in Transportation
The interdepartmental Doctoral Program in Transportation provides a structured and direct follow-on doctoral program for students enrolled in the MST program or other transportation-related master degree programs at MIT or elsewhere. The interdepartmental structure of the program allows students greater flexibility in developing individual programs of study that cross both disciplinary and departmental lines. The program is administered by the transportation faculty through the Transportation Education Committee (TEC), who are responsible for admissions, establishment and oversight of program requirements, and conduct of the general examination and thesis defense.

Summary of Requirements:

  • 120 units of graduate level subjects, including a doctoral core program, consisting of two subject areas as selected by the student
  • Successful completion of the general exam by the end of academic year 2
  • Successful completion of the PhD proposal
  • PhD Thesis, equivalent to 24 units

Both the interdepartmental Master of Science in Transportation and the interdepartmental Doctoral Program in Transportation are administered through the department of Civil and Environmental Engineering.
