Professional Development Sequences

To address the needs of the civil engineering profession, the SIUE Department of Civil Engineering has created two professional development sequences (PDS) for post-baccalaureate study. Both highlight aspects of sustainable development relevant to civil engineers. The PDS for Sustainable Infrastructure includes courses on sustainable engineering (CE 596), intelligent transportation systems (CE 578), and municipal infrastructure (CE 460). The PDS for Sustainable Planning includes courses on sustainable engineering (CE 596), solid waste management (CE 588), and transportation planning (CE 475). Students must meet the criteria for entry into the civil engineering masters program to pursue either PDS ( http://www.siue.edu/engineering/civilengineering/graduate/admission.shtml). Students who successfully complete a PDS will receive a certificate from the School of Engineering. The courses can be applied toward the civil engineering masters degree. For more information, contact Dr. Ryan Fries, Graduate Program Director, at 618-650-5026 or rfries@siue.edu.
