CEE now offers two-semester master of engineering programs

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) at the University of Michigan now offers two new master’s degree programs, both of which can be completed in just two semesters.| Short Read

These are Master of Engineering (MEng) programs in Construction Engineering and Management and in Structural Engineering.

MEng in Construction Engineering and Management

Launch yourself into a professional career in the construction industry!

The rapidly growing need for infrastructure development and renewal, both within the U.S. and abroad, means that there is great demand within the construction industry for highly skilled professionals. Become one of these sought-after professionals with this one-year program, best suited to those who hold a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering or an equivalent.

MEng in Structural Engineering

We’ll prepare you to lead in the increasingly complex field of structural design!

Careers in contemporary structural design demand strong foundations in practical applications and design concepts coupled with skills in coordinating the input of multidisciplinary professionals. In this program, you’ll develop the skills in structural analysis and design concepts needed to succeed, together with opportunities to work with others in related disciplines.

The electrons absorb laser light and set up “momentum combs” (the hills) spanning the energy valleys within the material (the red line). When the electrons have an energy allowed by the quantum mechanical structure of the material—and also touch the edge of the valley—they emit light. This is why some teeth of the combs are bright and some are dark. By measuring the emitted light and precisely locating its source, the research mapped out the energy valleys in a 2D crystal of tungsten diselenide.

Mapping quantum structures with light to unlock their capabilities

Rather than installing new “2D” semiconductors in devices to see what they can do, this new method puts them through their paces with lasers and light detectors. | Medium Read
