On Campus Program

Graduate school often involves some level of specialization, especially when a dissertation is involved. Your goal should be to develop expertise in a particular area, and also to expand your transferable skillset and your general knowledge. Ideally, you should strive to become both a specialist and a generalist. Whether you are on an academia track or preparing for industrial work, your employer will value your ability to solve a breadth of technical problems and collaborate with others outside your area of expertise.

Required courses

The Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) may be waived for students who have received a four-year bachelor’s or a master’s degree from an accredited university in the United States or from a country where English is the only official language.

The CCEE department’s minimum TOEFL requirement is: TOEFL-iBT 82 or TOEFL-pBT 553. If your score is below this level your application will not be considered for admission to Iowa State University’s Civil, Construction and Environmental Engineering Department. Take your TOEFL exam at least three months before you apply. If you take the IELTS instead of the TOEFL, the application requirement is 6.5.

Opportunities

For most individuals, securing a good job is the desired outcome of spending years in a graduate program. The process for securing employment can be very similar for graduate students and undergraduate students (especially at the master’s degree level), but there are a couple of important differences. One of the main differences is that graduate school provides some level of specialization, so professional networking takes on added importance in matching job seekers with specialized skills and interests to employers with specialized needs
