Bachelor of Science, Major in Civil Engineering

Master of Science, Major in Engineering, Concentration in Civil Engineering

Doctor of Philosophy in Material Science, Engineering, and Commercialization (MSEC)


In addition, the Ingram School of Engineering offers a Cooperative Education program for its undergraduate students.

Undergraduate Program

The Ingram School of Engineering offers a 126 credit Bachelor of Science degree with a Major in Civil Engineering. The academic program focuses on the application of technology to civil infrastructure. We call it “Technology-enhanced Infrastructure (TEI).” Not all technology is “Smart,” but technology can improve the safety, economic value, and functional performance of an infrastructure asset. We have courses in environmental, geotechnical, materials, structural, transportation, water resources, and civil cyber infrastructure. Our program includes three electives in the senior year which allows a student in-depth study in one or more sub-discipline.

The Ingram School of Engineering also has a Cooperative Education Program for undergraduate students seeking to incorporate professional work experience into their academic experience. This combination will enhance a student’s professional and career development.



Graduate Programs

The Ingram School of Engineering offers a 33 credit Master of Science, Major in Engineering, Civil Engineering concentration degree. This degree allows a student to explore the principles of civil engineering in greater depth both in the classroom and through research culminating in a thesis or a project culminating in a report.


The College of Science and Engineering offers a 55 credit Doctor of Philosophy degree in Materials Science, Engineering, and Commercialization (MSEC). The MSEC program at Texas State is an integrated effort based on the university’s biology, chemistry and biochemistry, physics, engineering, engineering technology and business school programs. The MSEC program’s goal is to train graduate scientists and engineers to perform interdisciplinary research while equipping them to emerge as effective entrepreneurial leaders in the advancement of 21st-century global discovery and innovation.
