By selecting technical electives, students may focus on one of several areas of concentration or prepare for future endeavors such as architecture. Some typical concentrations are below:
Construction engineering and management: Capital facility planning and financing, strategic management, managing engineering and construction processes, construction industry law, construction techniques, managing civil infrastructure systems, civil engineering and construction entrepreneurship
Engineering Mechanics: The science that deals with the behavior of solids and fluids when subjected to loads, displacements or a range of other boundary conditions.
- Environmental engineering and water resources: Transport of water-borne substances, hydrology, sediment transport, hydrogeology, and geoenvironmental design of containment systems
Forensic (Structural) Engineering: Investigation and determination of the causes of structural failures of buildings, bridges and other constructed facilities
Geotechnical engineering: Soil Mechanics, Foundation Engineering, Earth Retaining Structures, Slopes, and Geotechnical Earthquake Engineering
- Structural engineering: Applications to steel and concrete buildings, bridges, and other structures
