edX and Purdue University Launch Fully Online Master’s in Civil Engineering
edX is pleased to announce the launch of an online Master of Science in Civil Engineering from Purdue University’s Lyles School of Engineering. Our partnership with Purdue is rooted in a shared commitment to furthering innovation in education, and making high quality learning experiences in today’s in-demand subjects accessible to learners everywhere. This is especially important as our world and workplace is changed by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Master’s degree in Civil Engineering is designed for working professionals to complete part-time, and provides a deep dive into civil engineering with three interdisciplinary tracks: water infrastructure; infrastructure design, resilience and sustainability; and transportation systems. The degree is ranked the #6 civil engineering graduate degree program by U.S. News and World Report.
“Purdue is working persistently to expand its online presence to serve all types of students,” said Gerry McCartney, executive vice president for Purdue Online. “In pursuing this goal, it makes sense to lead with your strengths, and engineering is certainly a Purdue strength, one recognized worldwide. These affordable, versatile online engineering master’s degrees through edX align well with what we want to achieve.”
This is the third online Master’s degree from Purdue offered on edX. Purdue’s online Master’s in Mechanical Engineering was announced in June 2020, and the Electrical and Computer Engineering degree was announced in September 2019. All three degrees are top-10 ranked programs and priced at $22,500.
Master’s degrees on edX are unique because they are stacked degree programs with a MicroMasters® program component. A MicroMasters program is a series of graduate-level courses that provides learners with valuable standalone skills that translate into career-focused advancement, as well as the option to use the completed coursework as a stepping stone toward credit in a full Master’s degree program. We will be announcing the MicroMasters program that stacks into the Master’s in Civil Engineering in the near future.
