The MS in Structural Engineering program has been developed collaboratively between SU faculty members and our Industry Advisory Board. The Industry Advisory Board is composed of representatives from the top structural engineering firms and public-sector institutions in the Seattle region. With industry help, we've developed a program emphasizing student-centered course design and practical application. Features of this program include:
At the end of graduation, students from our Master of Science in Structural Engineering are expected to be able to:
These 5 learning outcomes follow much of the methodology proposed in ASCE's Body of Knowledge, which outlines student outcomes and achievement levels needed for entry into the civil engineering profession.
We seek to prepare graduates for productive and fulfilling life-long careers in the engineering profession. The program provides a strong foundation in the areas of mathematics, basic and engineering sciences, and the humanities and social sciences while promoting further self-development and life-long intellectual achievement. The program also seeks to build student skills in written and oral communication, and a sense of poise and professionalism.Dr. Katie Kuder Professor
