Doctor of Civil Engineering (D.Sc) at AIU
The Doctor of Civil Engineering (D.Sc) helps students tailor a highly individualized program of study directed toward completion of a dissertation that is expected to make an important contribution in their selected area. Civil Engineering is a broadly based discipline that includes a variety of specialties in the areas of mechanics, structural engineering, construction materials, environmental engineering, water resources engineering, geotechnical and environmental engineering, and transportation engineering. The Civil Engineering program is designed to advance the professional development of experienced civil engineering graduates and professionals in the civil engineering arena by extending their knowledge and equipping them with broad research and process civil engineering skills, enabling them to make a key leadership contribution to their chosen fields.
AIU’s Doctorate degree in Civil Engineering goes one step further by allowing students to study and research multiple key areas of computer science to develop a unique foundation of practical knowledge and computer science theory.
Your AIU Distance Learning Doctorate program in Civil Engineering will be a custom-made program, designed just for you by you and your advisor. This flexibility to meet your needs is seldom found in other distance learning programs. Our program does not require every student to study the same subjects and use the same books and other learning materials as every other student. Instead, our online Doctoral programs are designed just for you. They are individually designed to meet your needs and help you to reach your professional and personal goals.
