This dual degree option is a specific tailoring of the construction engineering and management specialization in the M.S. in Civil Engineering program and is only available to students pursuing the M.Arch. degree.

The dual degree program permits students to obtain both an M.Arch. and a M.S. in Civil Engineering in substantially less time than if each degree was pursued separately. A maximum of 15 credits may be used to satisfy requirements of both degrees.

Students take courses shown below to fulfill requirements for the M.S. in Civil Engineering, or their equivalent. There is no thesis requirement. Students without a bachelor's degree in civil engineering must complete the bridge program; these courses do not count toward degree requirements. See the undergraduate catalog for descriptions of these courses.

At the time of admission to the dual degree program, the civil engineering graduate advisor will determine if any M.S. in Civil Engineering course requirements can be waived.

The requirements to obtain the M.S. in Civil Engineering degree are:

M.Arch. and M.S. in Civil Engineering (civil engineering bachelor's degree)

Co-op Work Experience in Architecture and the Housing Scholars Program give students an opportunity to gain additive credits and salaried employment.

To become eligible to take the architecture registration examination in New Jersey, professional M.Arch. Graduates must complete three years of practical work experience apprenticeship that meet specific criteria set by the New Jersey State Board of Architects. Co-op internship work experiences in architecture meeting these criteria are acceptable equivalents for such apprenticeships, and are available to NJIT students. Students become eligible after completing the first year of M.Arch core courses.

The Housing Scholars Program provides college students with paid summer internships at non-profit, community-based affordable housing organizations, and is jointly administered by NJIT's Division of Career Development Services and the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs. Housing Fellows are placed with community-based, non-profit organizations that initiate affordable housing and related projects. Graduate students who have completed at least 28 credits of core courses and who have an overall cumulative GPA of 3.2 or above are eligible to participate. Scholars are selected through a competitive application to the Division of Career Development Services and an interview process throughout February and March, and begin their internship in early June.

Students should consult the School of Architecture co-op advisor for details on work experience and the Housing Scholars program.
