The Tennessee Department of Transportation has contracted with the University of Tennessee to provide certain degree courses via distance education. These course offerings are available to all students. This non-thesis program consists of six core courses (CE 522, CE 540, CE 551, CE 553, CE 574, and ENV 525) and four elective courses. The coursework provides advanced training in areas pertinent to transportation planning, roadway and bridge-related projects and construction oversight; however, the breadth and flexibility of the program can be tailored to a wide range of civil engineering applications. All Non-thesis M.S. students are required to take a culminating written examination. The written exam is offered twice a year - Fall and Spring Terms and is administered on the Knoxville campus.
