Offered through the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, the Master of Science in Civil and Environmental Engineering helps students approach, evaluate and devise solutions to some of the largest problems facing modern infrastructure and the environment today.
Students may choose to pursue their studies in one of the following areas of focus:
The Berkeley College of Environmental Design's Global Access Program (CED-GAP) provides unique access to top-notch Berkeley faculty, courses and networks within the innovation ecosystem of the Bay Area and Silicon Valley. Through CED-GAP, qualifying international students gain the knowledge, skills and connections necessary to excel as innovators and thought leaders in the fields that encompass sustainable environmental design. Built for both design majors (architects and landscape architects) as well as students seeking a broader understanding of the built environment, the core curriculum emphasizes sustainability, design, innovation, social equity and the history of cities and landscapes. A key program feature for design majors is the opportunity to take an integrated design studio, while non-design majors enjoy a broad range of classes from across the College.
In addition to a formal course of study, CED-GAP students are integrated into the San Francisco Bay Area through field trips, site visits to museums, firm visits and college activities - these might include public lectures, symposia, clubs, social events and conferences. While at Berkeley, CED-GAP students also have an opportunity to explore their own professional development, learn about graduate school admissions, participate in cohort lunches and explore California through field trips that combine experiential education and fun.
Students take 4 courses (12-15 units) per semester. Upon completion, students will receive a transcript from the University of California, Berkeley Extension and a Certificate of Completion from Berkeley’s College of Environmental Design. Programs may also be customized to meet curricular needs of students.
