Civil engineering programs are not commonly found online, however, students do have some options. Graduate-level certificate programs in specific areas of civil engineering areas can be found as fully online programs, such as those in water resources engineering, railroad engineering, pavement engineering and transportation engineering.
Civil Engineering Diplomas and Certificates
There are few, if any, diploma programs in civil engineering. A diploma is generally awarded in less time than an associate degree. The diploma programs that do exist online have to do with engineering support subjects like computer-aided design; therefore, most fall into the category of civil engineering technology.
There are, however, numerous graduate certificate programs in specialized areas of civil engineering. Graduate certificate programs provide continuing education and specialization education that can enhance job prospects and improve careers.
