A new Professional Master's in the Burke Graduate Program
Fall 2019 kicks off the inaugural class of the school's professional master's degree program, based in the Burke Graduate Program.
With its focus on civil engineering leadership, entrepreneurship and management, the CE-LEM program provides opportunities for students to gain the best possible education and get prepared to make an immediate impact in the profession, whether they choose careers in industry or government.
"We couldn't be more excited to start the professional master's concentration," says Dulcy Abraham, professor of civil engineering and chair of the Christopher B. and Susan S. Burke Graduate Program. "Not only will our students gain a valuable, specialized education that will allow them to become leaders in their fields, but the world of civil engineering will greatly benefit from these highly trained professionals."
The CE-LEM option incorporates professional skills and managerial competencies. Instruction takes place primarily on campus. Up to 25% of the credits may be completed online. Additionally, students pursuing the concentration are eligible to apply to the recently approved concurrent MS-MBA program, offered jointly by Purdue's College of Engineering and Krannert School of Management. This program allows students to receive both their MSCE and an MBA in just two years.
