The Colorado State University OnlinePlus, at http://col.st/PIllv, civil engineering program gives students first-hand exposure to the faculty’s world-renowned research and experiences in global water resource issues. Watch Professor Neil Grigg talk on vulnerabilities of critical infrastructure.

Professor Neil Grigg divides U.S. infrastructure vulnerabilities into two categories, natural disasters and terrorist related events, and explains and how Colorado State is working toward improvements through civil engineering.

Colorado State University is one of the few institutions providing an online graduate degree in civil engineering with a focus on water resources and management.

With an ever-growing population, today's civil engineers face the challenge of building and maintaining a sustainable infrastructure. One of our most critical resources is water, and the Master of Engineering in Civil Engineering program, offered online through CSU OnlinePlus, prepares you to tackle the evolving water concerns and other infrastructure issues facing future generations.

This degree program will give you a strong understanding of modern design, testing, and analysis techniques and a practical and cutting-edge knowledge of water resources.

Through your course work, you will master concepts in: water control and measurement, physical and engineering hydrology, water resources planning, management, and systems analysis, environmental monitoring, geographic information systems (GIS), infrastructure management and security, and linear programming and network flows.

The Master in Engineering in Civil Engineering provides you with the skills and knowledge to handle the new engineering problems that arise from our industrial-oriented society. By becoming a more environmentally-educated engineer, you will be well-situated to pursue green positions, helping with areas such as water purification, flow, containment and transport. Consulting firms, industrial firms, and governmental agencies want engineers with advanced training in water resources engineering, systems analysis and optimization, hydrology, hydraulics, and civil engineering infrastructure.

Civil engineers with a focus on water resource management are needed in a global marketplace, though specific career opportunities depend on the desired region and job market. As a civil engineering graduate you'll find outstanding employment prospects in public works, private consulting or regulatory organizations, and government or military agencies.
